Christopher George Latore Wallace (May 21, 1972 - March 9, 1997), better known by his stage names The Notorious B.I.G., Biggie or Biggie Smalls, was an American rapper. Wallace was raised in the Brooklyn borough of New York City. When he released his debut album Ready to Die in 1994, he became a central figure in the East Coast hip hop scene and increased New York's visibility in the genre at a time when West Coast hip hop was dominant in the mainstream. The following year, Wallace led his childhood friends to chart success through his protÃ©gÃ© group, Junior M.A.F.I.A.

Big poppa is that big Italian mobster that is always eating a that same restaurant. That has plates of all different sorts of food all around him. that is just for him. He sits there all day just waiting for the fellas to come in and give him information. And who does get shot by the gangster who is going to take over that areas mob. Or it is my grandson who has Italian blood who is so smart for his young kindergarten age and acts all grown up. I call him my big poppa because he is always helping me. And always right and makes very good sense. Ahead of his time.
