Notorious B.I.G.’s Mother Confirms Hologram Shows
A hologram of The Notorious B.I.G. is coming soon. The late rapper's mother, Voletta Wallace, has confirmed that a company called ARHT Media is working on a hologram of her son.
"I am very pleased to announce that the estate of my son Christopher Wallace - also known to the world as Biggie or Notorious B.I.G - we have partnered with ARHT Media, a technology company, to create a Humagram of Christopher's image, body and movements, " Voletta Wallace says in the clip. "No other company has the rights to any hologram or his name or likeness or imaging. We are humbled and very excited about this new venture with ARHT Media and the endless opportunities it presents to further extend my son's legacy."
Last month, Biggie's wife Faith Evans spoke about the creation of a Notorious B.I.G. hologram during an interview on the Dame Dash Radio Show.
"We actually are in development with a hologram [company], but I don’t necessarily know to what extent I’m gonna perform with it," Evans said at the time. "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… It’s expensive, as you can imagine."
Voletta Wallace's message proves that things are official now. No specific plans for the hologram have been released at this time. There has been speculation that a hologram of Biggie might appear at the upcoming Bad Boy Family reunion show, but there is no confirmation of its use from the estate of Christopher Wallace or Puff Daddy.
