Childhood And Early Life
Born on October 29th of 1996, C.J. was born to parents Faith Evans and Christopher Evans as Christopher George Latore Wallace Jr. CJ's mother Faith Evans is a well-known singer while his father was a rapper well-known as The Notorious B.I.G.

While CJ did get some fame as the son of a great rapper, he was pushed more into the limelight after his father was assassinated roughly five months after his birth.

Becoming An Actor And Starting A Company. What is CJ Wallace's Net Worth?
As stated, CJ started making a name for himself at a very young age, but unlike what most people thought, it wasn't in a music career. In 2009, CJ appeared in the movie Notorious and he played the role of his father, The Notorious Big's younger self, and wouldn't you know it, he had a knack for acting.
Following that movie, CJ appeared in a short named Thirty Nothing in 2009 and a comedy movie named Everything Must Go in 2010. CJ then decided to take a break from Hollywood and again made an appearance in the 2016 movie Kicks, and continued to appear in movies and TV shows since including She's Missing, Screams: The TV Series, and Like Blood. Of course, he made quite a bit of money from this career.
In March of 2019, CJ, along with his step-father Todd Russaw and fellow entrepreneur, Willie Mac started their own cannabis company called the Think Big and it was an instant hit. The company places its emphasis on curiosity, creativity, contemplation, and healing and also prioritizes social justice initiatives.
Of course, with such success in both Hollywood and business, one can expect CJ to have quite a bit of wealth, however saying 'quite a bit might be an understatement.' At only 23 years of age, CJ Wallace's net worth has been estimated at a grand of $50 million. As for his mother, Faith Evans' net worth is estimated at $3 million, while Notorious BIG's net worth, before his death, was estimated at $10 million. This alone goes to show that in a short time, he has used his fame to his advantage and earned a lot of money.
