The story of a Biggie Smalls ghost is making national headlines this afternoon, as UPI Entertainment News reported this Wednesday, March 13, that a new animated show is currently under wraps featuring the late rapper Biggie Smalls and his children, while his two kids run his recording studio in New York, said producers.
Under the headline, “Biggie Smalls ghost to be new character in animated TV series”, sources report that the memory of Chris Wallace — the Notorious B.I.G.’s real name — will live on now through the small screen.
The hip-hop star was shot to death back in 1997 at the age of 24. His murder is still unsolved.
Yet a new animated TV series that is reportedly in the works will offer a more lighthearted look at the life Biggie Smalls left behind with his children in the recording studio.
His two kids, T’yanna and C.J. Wallace, are set to voice their own animated characters in the TV show. Famous artists in music are also planned to appear as different guests on the upcoming series, said the production company in their release statement.
Biggie Smalls’ ghost as a benign spirit is also said to be a main character as well, “appearing to the children in ethereal form to guide them through the adversities they face as they struggle to preserve their father's labor of love.”
The new TV show will showcase some original songs, added the report, in addition to remakes of popular hits that Notorious B.I.G. contributed to music during his lifetime.
"It's been 16 years since our dad was murdered and we miss him dearly. ... It is such an honor for us to be able to carry on his legacy, not only through his music but also by channeling him through our own creativity. This project, 'House of Wallace,' is a great opportunity for us to bridge the gap between our parents who loved his music and the kids and young adults our ages, that were not around to really appreciate it," T'yanna and C.J. Wallace concluded in their statement.
