Notorious B.I.G facts: 26 things you didn't know about Biggie Smalls
12. Puff gave The Notorious B.I.G approximately £25,000 as an advance for signing with Bad Boy.
Voletta Wallace (Biggie's mum) touched on this in her book Biggie, which was published eight years after Biggie's death. In the book, she writes, "The truth is, Christopher accepted the illusion of a friend and mentor for about $25,000. That's the amount Puffy lured my son with... It was enough money to make my son believe that Puffy was ready to do anything for him." Picture: rex
