RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif., June 4 (UPI) -- Christopher Wallace
Jr., the son of R&B singer Faith Evans and late rapper Notorious B.I.G
., graduated high school Thursday in California.
The new graduate, who goes by the name C.J., graduated from Santa Margarita Catholic High School, a photo his mother posted on Instagram indicates.
"My first born son @cj_toa & I #proud," Evans wrote in the caption accompanying the photo.
C.J. was less than a year old when his father, Christopher Smalls Sr., or Biggie Smalls, was shot to death in a drive-by shooting in 1997.
