NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) — Rapper Biggie Smalls (AKA Notorious B.I.G.) may be appearing at a festival, or concert near you, even though he's been dead for almost 20 years.
According to CNN, the rapper's widow, singer Faith Evans, recently revealed that she is collaborating on the creation of a hologram of Biggie.
"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," Evans told the Dame Dash Radio Show.
While Evans did not reveal who she was developing the hologram with, the likely bet is Hologram USA, who has raised other celebrities from their eternal rest, including Tupac Shakur and Whitney Houston. The company told Entertainment Weekly that they had been in contact with Biggie's reps regarding the concept but demurred on offering specifics.
However, if true, the timing may be fortuitous. Sean Combs, founder of Biggie's Bad Boy Records label home, has recently discussed plans to reunite some of the label's artists for a concert at the Barclays Center in New York on May 20, which is coincidentally Biggie's Birthday.
Notorious B.I.G., known as Christopher Wallace to his family, was shot to death on March 9th, 1997 by unknown assailants. The case remains open – Staff Writers
