I found this article on XXLmag.com. It’s great to see the son of Biggie Smalls doing things. In this interview he talks about how great it was to work with Will Ferrel, how his grandmother encouraged him to play the role of his dad in “Notorious”, How he will probably stick with acting over music, listening to Odd Future, hanging out with the Diddy Family, and what video games he’s playing right now.

As we interviewed CJ Wallace, son of hip-hop legend Notorious B.I.G., we couldn’t help but notice his father’s traits come across; the younger Wallace is equally as funny and charming as his father once was.

Still, CJ is miles away from Kenny, the forlorn character he portrays in the new Will Ferrell-led film Everything Must Go. In EMG, Wallace and Ferrell’s down-on-his-luck Nick character forge a unique friendship.

Here the 14-year-old talks to XXLMag.com about his dad’s legacy, working with Ferrell, and Odd Future’s Tyler, the Creator. — Jesús Triviño Alarcón

XXLMag.com: Talk about your character in Everything Must Go.

CJ Wallace: Kenny, he’s a loner. He’s a real lonely kid who doesn’t have any friends. His sister is the only adult who looks after him because his mom works late. All he does is ride his bike around the neighborhood. [One day] he notices this stuff out on [his neighbor’s] lawn. Kenny sees that as an opportunity to possibly gain a friend. He ends up becoming best friends with him [Will Ferrell’s character].

XXLMag.com: Are you a fan of Will Ferrell?

Wallace: Definitely, I love all of his movies. My favorite is Talladega Nights because I can watch it all the time. I can never get tired of it. It’s too funny [Laughs].

XXLMag.com: How was it working with him?

Wallace: It was great. He’s a cool dude. He was kind of different than what I expected. I thought he’d be the guy to crack jokes all the time. He can be real serious. [We had] a good relationship. It was almost like [real life] Kenny and Nick. He was real helpful off-set. He helped me out with stuff I didn’t really understand. He’s real easy to work with and he made me feel comfortable all the time.
