Notorious B.I.G.’s daughter, T’yanna Wallace, celebrated the impending birth of her baby girl with a baby shower yesterday. The mom-to-be was surrounded by her friends and family, including her brothers CJ Wallace and Joshua Russaw, and her boyfriend as she celebrated the upcoming birth of her first child, whose name will be Thailah.
T’yanna was just three years old when B.I.G. also known as Biggie Smalls was killed in a drive-by shooting. Nowadays, the 28-year-old carries on her father’s legacy through her many business ventures, including her clothing brand, Notoriouss, and other businesses.
“I’ve always been into fashion, since high school…” she told iHeart Radio. “I went to Penn State. My major was business and then around my sophomore year I was like I really want to start a clothing line and I really want to do something dedicated and kinda inspired by my dad. So that’s how the name Notoriouss came out and that’s how I started doing my clothing line straight from college. I wanted to do something where I could continue his legacy and I don’t do music, so it wasn’t going to be that. So, I wanted to do something that would keep his name alive and also have me included in it.”
T’yanna recently unveiled the launch of her first-ever beauty product,” Big Poppa Mascara”, in collaboration with Wet-N-Wild beauty.
“I am so excited for this collaboration, It feels great to be partnering with Wet-N-Wild! I have been a frequent customer of the brand so when the opportunity was presented I jumped on it. Besides, how cool is it to work with brands you’ve already been supporting for so many years?” She shared with Black Enterprise.
The expectant mom made sure that guests at her baby shower received “Big Poppa Mascara” in their gift bags. How sweet and entrepreneurial!
