Originally posted 01/27/2014 01:00PM

When Lorde won two awards (song of the year and best pop solo performance) at the 2014 Grammys, she didn't just become the third-youngest winner in the ceremony's history.

And it's a question that haunts those who knew and loved him, including his mother Voletta Wallace.

"It hurts that this has been dragging on for so long," says Wallace, who along with Combs was a producer on the film. "There's a little nudge now and then, but then we have to wait and wait and wait. But you have to understand: I have all the time in the world. I'm not going anywhere."
