The teenage kids of Notorious B.I.G. are trying to prove that, for their father, there is life after death...at least, in animated form.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Biggie's children C.J. and T'yanna Wallace, 16- and 19-years-old, respectively, will star in an animated series called House of Wallace. The series, currently being shopped to networks, centers on the two kids as they fight to keep their father's New York recording studio, and in turn his legacy, alive. To keep the doors open at the studio, they start a side business writing and recording jingles. Of course, Biggie will make regular appearances as a friendly spirit who guides and encourages them.
"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,” his children wrote in a statement. "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."
According to the statement, the series will feature guest appearances from various rappers as well as original music and "re-imagined" renditions from Biggie's classic catalog.
