The upcoming designer revealed this to Page Six at the launch of her clothing line.
According to Wallace, she wishes to be recognized for her own personal efforts, not just being his offspring,
She added that Biggie’s daughter is not her name and she wants to be referred to as T’yanna Wallace who has a clothing line and is looking to succeed in the business world.
Her words, “I don’t like when people say, ‘Oh, that’s Biggie’s daughter,’ because that’s not my name. Now everybody knows Notoriouss clothing by T’yanna Wallace. I barely hear ‘Biggie’s daughter.’ I hear T’yanna first, and I like that.”

Christopher George Latore Wallace (May 21, 1972 – March 9, 1997), better known as The Notorious B.I.G., Biggie Smalls, or Biggie, was an American rapper, songwriter, and actor. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest rappers of all time. He was noted for his loose and easy flow, dark and semi-autobiographical lyrics, and storytelling abilities which focused on crime and hardship.
Wallace was born at St. Mary’s Hospital in the Brooklyn borough of New York City on May 21, 1972, the only child of Jamaican immigrant parents. His mother, Voletta Wallace, was a preschool teacher, while his father, Selwyn George Latore, was a welder and politician.
His father left the family when Wallace was two years old, and his mother worked two jobs while raising him. Wallace grew up at 226 St. James Place in Brooklyn’s Clinton Hill, near the border with Bedford-Stuyvesant.
Wallace excelled at Queen of All Saints Middle School, winning several awards as an English student. He was nicknamed “Big” because he was overweight by the age of 10. Wallace said he started dealing drugs when he was around the age of 12. His mother, often away at work, did not know of his drug dealing until he was an adult. He began rapping as a teenager, entertaining people on the streets, and performed with local groups the Old Gold Brothers and the Techniques.
