Hi I'm Voletta Wallace, Biggie's momI wish to thank you for your kind wordsYou warm gestures and your constant support over the yearsI also need to share with you a few words about my sonPlease take a few moments and listenI hope you gain something from it, thanksAs a child Christopher was outspokenWhen it suited him at times he was quietAnd of course he was mischievous as all little boys areAs a young man he likes to do everythingHe liked to read, he liked to be with his friendsAs young kids or young boys he enjoyed lifeEverything that would make him happy or comfortableHe would do but mostly he enjoyed being with his friends and familyHis early inspirations toward rap music wereThe LL's of the world, the Sugar Hills, the Mr. MagicsAnd the Fat Boys of the rap channelThose were all the things I heard in the houseEven though I called it noise and bangingI know now, it is a accepted musical art formI was a single parent, I raised my son on my ownHis father had no influence on his decisionTowards the musical outlet or career he choseMy son had a mind of his own, even if his father was aroundHe would have turned to rap he loved music, he loved rapAt a point in my sons life he developed paranoiaAbout death and about the dyingWe are living in a world of imperfect human beingsWhere greed, jealousy and envyAre manifested by what others have accomplished in lifeMy son was very very much aware of thatHe appreciated his station in life on the directionsIn which he was going or travelingOn the other hand there were othersWho I should use the hip hop phrase player hatingAnd I think that is what resulted in his paranoiaIf I had to change anything in my sons lifeThat would have allowed him to be here todayI would have deterred him from a career in musicI'm aware that millions appreciate his music, millions loved his musicBe that it may if he hadn't chosen that lifestyle, that careerMy son would be alive todayIf I could sum up Christopher in one word the word would be generousThe thing that my son loved most about life was the fact thatHe was in a position to help, position to sharePosition to give to others who needed, to others who wantedTo others appreciated the gifts that he gave
