Notorious BIG hologram will debut in Faith Evans video this fall
Faith Evans has been teasing fans since 2014 with news of a posthumous duet with her husband, Notorious BIG. In a recent interview with Dame Dash, the songstress took it one step further, claiming a hologram could possibly be in the works for videos and even live performing.
Apparently, dreams do come true as today ARHT Media has confirmed they’ve landed the rights to produce the hologram. The late rapper’s avatar will be a joint venture with ByStorm Entertainment which handles Biggie’s estate. ARHT has been vocal about the development, stating that the “humagram” will use cutting edge technology for a one of a kind live performance experience.
Evans’ forthcoming album, The King & I, will be solely duets and is now officially slated for a September release. In addition to an appearance in a music video for the album, AHRT is reporting a tour is in the works. Speculation is already underway that the “humagram” will make an appearance at Puff Daddy and the Family’s upcoming shows in Brooklyn on the late rapper’s birthday.
“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 said in a statement. “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.'”
Even Biggie’s mother seems to be excited to watch the project come to fruition after so long in the works.
“This project has been a long-time coming, and it is very special to me,” said Voletta Wallace, the late rapper’s mother. “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.”
