Did She Inherit Any Assets From Biggie?
Faith Evans net worth has not been impacted by any asset inherited from Biggie. The hard-working woman has always got her grinds and hustle going even when Biggie was alive. She did not directly inherit any asset from him but her son Christopher George Latore Wallace, widely known as Christopher Jordan Wallace aka C.J, got some of his father’s assets alongside his half-sister, T’yanna Wallace. That’s how the young C.J Wallace came to own a whopping sum of 50 million dollars.
Biggie, whose net worth was valued at about $10 million at his death, is now much wealthier, thanks to the team managing (comprising of his mother Voletta, his widow Faith Evans, attorney, and other managers) his estate and legacy, which has grown in the past two decades to an estimated $160 million. The fortune was accrued from documentaries, his biopic movie Notorious, books, sales of merchandises and released records after his death that skyrocketed in over 53 million record sales.
After the passing of the Notorious B.I.G, most of the proceeds from sales of his records, merchandise, documentaries, and endorsement deals were put into the establishment of a foundation for the late rapper and the other part was shared between the children of late Biggie – T’yanna and Christopher Jordan Wallace and the producers.
