First there was the Tupac hologram, now there's the Biggie Smalls ghost. The rapper known as The Notorious B.I.G. will take the form of a friendly ghost in a brand new cartoon coming to a TV network in the future.
According to Gawker.com on March 12, the new show will be called "House of Wallace" and also stars the children of the late Christopher Wallace. The show's synopsis has C.J. and Tyanaa Wallace trying to prevent their late father's Brooklyn music stuidio from being taken over by "a cookie cutter 'entertainment factory.'" Aiding them in keeping funds up for the studio, they let famous artists come in and record jingles for big name brands in the world. Additionally, the kids record tracks of their own at night to keep the "Notorious heritage" alive.
Also helping out will be the late Biggie Smalls in the form of a ghost who appears to help guide his children through various trials and tribulations. According to the show's press release, it will also include a soundtrack of original music and "re-imagined renditions of classics from the Wallace catalog." Among the hits B.I.G. is famous for are "Juicy," "Hypnotize," and "Mo Money, Mo Problems."
Christopher Wallace, also known as Notorious B.I.G., or Biggie Smalls, was fatally shot back in 1997 in Los Angeles. To this date the individuals responsible for his murder are still a mystery.
