Two weeks ago, Faith Evans dished on the Dame Dash Radio Show that not only is she prepping a duet album featured her late husband, rapper Notorious B.I.G.( Christopher Wallace) titled The King & I. She also said she was in talks with multiple hologram companies to use his image in videos and on tour.
Well, it’s a done deal; the rapper will live on in hologram form. According to The Notorious B.I.G.’s estate, they have given ARHT Media the greenlight to use the digital image of Wallace.
The first place we’ll see the hologram will be in Faith Evans upcoming music video for the single from the duet LP, The King & I.
Biggie’s mother, Voletta Wallace, told Billboard, “This project has been a long-time coming, and it is very special to me. Words can’t even capture how elated I am for the world to finally see my son again on stage and beyond. Christopher’s impact and legacy will not only live through his past work, but also the new experiences which have been made possible through ARHT Media.”
“After seeing all the technologies out there, I realized right away that ARHT Media would be the best partner to bring back Notorious B.I.G.,” Evans told Billboard. “I look forward to continue working with them and presenting the world with his Humagram in both video and stage format, through the release of my album The King & I.”
Along with the video, the hologram is rumored to make its way on stage in front of a live audience for Puff Daddy & The Family’s two-night reunion concert in May.
