That Biggie Hologram Is a Real Thing

That Biggie Hologram Is a Real Thing

Looks like it'll debut pretty soon, too.

Published October 7th

Based on the success of the Tupac hologram in 2012 and Michael Jackson hologram in 2014, Biggie's up next to be resurrected in the same medium and will be returning to stages across the world, almost two decades after his tragic and untimely murder.

The hologram version of the Notorious B.I.G. was first discussed back in April, and was supposed to make an appearance during Diddy's Bad Boy Family Reunion Tour. However, at the time, the hologram wasn't ready to make its debut, but according to a new report, it'll be here in no time.

As reported, the Biggie hologram is slated to make its debut in a new music video for Faith Evans's duet albumThe King and I.

Evans recently said that the project is slated to drop around Valentine's Day in 2017, just a month shy of the 20th anniversary of the iconic rapper's passing.

Reactions for the hologram's existence have been divided, but the one person whose opinion matters the most, is his mother, Voletta Wallace.

In a recent interview, Wallace shared that she believes the hologram is something that her late son's fans are eager to experience. 

“I remember when my son passed away, as a mother I heard horrible things,” she explained to Billboard. “But you just have to focus on the positive. That’s why the hologram came about — because I believe there are people out there that want to see it.”

And see it, they will.
