Notorious BIG‘s widow, Faith Evans, has revealed that plans are in the works to create a performance hologram of the late rapper.
Evans, whose tribute song to her late husband, ‘I’ll Be Missing You’, reached Number One shortly after his death in 1997, is currently working on a posthumous duets album with Biggie. Titled ‘The King & I’, it is set to drop in the autumn.
Discussing the album during an interview on The Dame Dash Radio Show, Evans said: “Today, if he was alive, I know, ultimately, we would’ve done something like this. But the way the stuff has come together, and the way I’m using his vocals, it’’s giving the stuff new life, it’s totally different.”
She added later in the interview: “We actually are in development with a hologram, but I don’t necessarily know to what extent I’m gonna perform with it. But I want to debut it in the first video for the album, and maybe use it a little bit performing live. But that depends on a lot of things.”
Hologram USA, the company behind performance holograms of Whitney Houston and Tupac Shakur, has confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that it has been “in talks” with the rapper’s estate about a potential Notorious BIG hologram, but added: “We’re unable to announce plans at this time.”
