Rare footage taken in 1995 shows Biggie shaving with an electric razor, and Butler explains, “My boy has three hairs, he’s getting nervous.”

Biggie explains that he can’t “look like I’m 21. I have to keep it” as he smiles for the camera in the hotel room.

Biggie’s mother, Voletta Wallace, reveals that her son, “was a very smart kid,” adding that he started writing as early as elementary school.

Another unidentified man says he was trying to ‘get Chris to be a jazz artist because he was so talented’.

Another unidentified man said Wallace would return from Jamaica every summer, and he was “a sponge of so much that was out of our reach.”

Another friend said Wallace just wanted to get him and all his friends “off the street,” while we see early footage of Biggie pounding the streets.

His mother said he told her not to work, and she believed him when he started doing drugs.

Diddy said he told Biggie that if he wanted a tail, he had to ‘commit’ to it, adding, “You can’t do both,” which means he still can’t sell drugs and start a rap career.
