Do you believe that talent can be passed down by genetics? If so, you may be excited that Christopher Jordan Wallace, the son of Notorius B.I.G. and Faith Evans, is working on a debut album with his younger half brother, Joshua Jahad Russaw.
According to reports, the rap duo, to be known as “CJ and Jahad,” has been working on their debut project for a few months and are gearing for a 2017 release.
“At a young age I always knew I wanted to do music, it was inevitable,” he tells The Evening Standard. “My family have always had my back, whatever I’ve wanted to do they’ve supported. They were always giving me advice on what to do and how to go about things.”
In addition to music, Wallace has his eyes on the film world. For those who forgot, Wallace played the younger version of his late father in the biopic Notorious. His latest endeavor in film making involves a project focusing on autism, a condition his younger sibling deals with.

Either way, the 20 year old has legendary shoes to fill.
