But I want to honor you in as many ways as I can. Forever…Dad was the coolest, the countriest, the funniest, the smartest. And I am so much of him.

FAITH EVANS IS NOT TOO HAPPY ABOUT HER UPCOMING 'LIFETIME' SPECIAL: Faith Evans is reportedly not too happy about her upcoming special with Lifetime entitled Hopelessly In Love: Biggie and Faith Evans, about her life and marriage to The Notorious B.I.G. According to Page Six, Faith said that the documentary didn’t turn out the way she thought it would. She explained, “I feel upset that I’m attached to it. I was told that it would be a positive piece with a little more of my personal background. It wasn’t pitched to me as a story rehashing the sensationalized events that took place…I am beyond that and have no need to open old wounds, damage repaired relationships and, above all, soil the legacy of Christopher Wallace a k a the Notorious B.I.G.” She continued, “The Tupac stuff, the different women — how many times are people going to talk about that? It was supposed to be a love story, and it turns into cheating and Lil’ Kim. We’ve come so far past that. Lifetime’s all about drama.” Faith added that the documentary uses old footage edited to add drama and that Biggie’s mom Voletta Wallace also isn’t happy with it. She said, “It’s about my morals. I would never do business I’m not proud of at this point in my career. I’m not happy.”
