Biggie's mom disses Diddy and Lil Kim in new book; shows love for Faith Evans

Speaking of Diddy, the Hollyhood team has often said that he needs to let BIG go. We just want Puffy, Puff Daddy, P. Diddy, to let one of our favorite rappers rest in peace. No more shout outs to BIG on award shows, no more BIG tribute songs to put money in his pocket, no more. Enough is enough. We all know that Diddy didn't even blow up until he released 1997's international hit- a tribute to the late BIG called "I'll Be Missing You," which featured Sting, 112 and Faith Evans. Talk about perfect timing... So, in our opinion, Diddy gained from Biggie's death. Isn't that ironic? And we are thrilled to hear that Voletta Wallace, Biggie's mother, agrees with us and talks about this in her new book. In her book, Momma Voletta states, "I believe Sean loved my son - after he was dead. I used to tell Christopher all the time not to trust Sean." Wallace also notes that Diddy has repeatedly been shouting out her son since his death.

Despite media reports about battles with her daughter-in-law Faith Evans, Momma Wallace says they couldn't have been further from the truth. She remains close to Faith, according to the book.

And while Lil Kim sits in jail sans her hair weave, colored contacts and make up (that's a scary thought), Momma Voletta keeps it real about Kim's fake ways and how Kim has and continues to exploit her son's legacy.
"I'm glad my son does not have to witness that the very people that he thought he could ride and die with wouldn't think twice about using his mother," Wallace writes in regards to Diddy and Kim. "I am glad that he's not here to see how they have used his image and his name." (Since Kim has so much free time on her hands in jail, Hollyhood is considering sending her an autographed copy of Momma Voletta's book.)


According to EURweb.com, in addition to the book, Momma Voletta is also working with Award Winning Director Antoine Fuqua to bring Christopher Wallace's life to the big screen. We can't wait to see who lands the roles of BIG, Lil Kim and Diddy!

Momma Voletta's memoir "Biggie: Voletta Wallace Remembers Her Son, Christopher Wallace, a.k.a. Notorious B.I.G.," is due Nov. 1 from Atria Books, where she candidly speaks out about her life, her son, and media-perpetuated falsehoods that have painted an often misleading portrait of the late rapper.

The book offers a well-rounded portrait of BIG, and the retired preschool teacher also talks freely about her relationships with some of her son's closest friends and associates, including Sean “Diddy” Combs, Lil' Kim, and Lil' Cease - all of whom she says have disappointed her by exploiting B.I.G.'s legacy professionally, financially, or both.
