Although Notorious B.I.G died in 1997, he is being kept alive, sort of. Biggie Smalls' ghost is appearing in an animated series, according to a March 12 CBS celebrity news story. Biggie, real name Christopher Wallace and his kids are appearing in cartoon called "House of Wallace."
A leading edge new media company, Ossian Media, has partnered with the immortal rapper's children, T'yanna Wallace, 19, and C.J. Wallace, 16, to form a television series.
In addition to the project being a tribute to Biggie's life; "House of Wallace" is meant to build on the popular culture inspired by Smalls' creative talent.
Biggie Smalls' ghostly spirit will appear time and again to his children, who are challenged with trying to keep his Brooklyn studio open for up and coming talent.
C.J. and T'yanna, who both voice their own characters in the cartoon series, released this statement Monday about the project:
"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."
While the media group has yet to partner with a network, it has a few in mind to bring the project to fruition.
"H.O.W." will feature many popular artists and the side-splitting humor from a cast of characters from the media group as well as B.I.G.'s kids.
Perhaps the best part of the series is the music, which features new projects and of course, hits from the Notorious B.I.G.'s catalog.
It's unknown who will voice Biggie Smalls' ghost.
