Evans is planning to release a posthumous collaboration album The King & I using unreleased material from the rapper and, as Billboard reports, a hologram will appear in videos for tracks presumably from the album.
LA-based company ARHT Media will produce the hologram in partnership with ByStorm Entertainment, the company that handles Biggie’s estate alongside Evans and his mother Voletta Wallace.
“After seeing all the technologies out there, I realized right away that ARHT Media would be the best partner to bring back Notorious B.I.G.,” Evans said in a statement about the decision to go with ARHT Media.
“I look forward to continue working with them and presenting the world with his Humagram in both video and stage format, through the release of my album The King & I.”
It’s being called a “humagram” rather than a hologram which basically means human hologram. It will first be debuted in a music video before it’s used as part of a stage production that’s yet to be formerly announced.
“This project has been a long-time coming, and it is very special to me,” said Biggie’s mother.
“Words can’t even capture how elated I am for the world to finally see my son again on stage and beyond.”
Puff Daddy is leading a Bad Boy Family Reunion in tribute of Biggie on 20th May, just one day before what would’ve been his 44th birthday. It’s not been announced whether or not Biggie’s hologram will appear but it wouldn’t be a far-out guess.
