The rumored Notorious B.I.G. hologram is set to premiere in a Faith Evans music video. Billboard reports, "ARHT Media has landed the digital rights to Notorious B.I.G.'s hologram. The partnership between the Los Angeles-based company and ByStorm Entertainment, who handles the late rapper's estate alongside singer Faith Evans and Biggie's mother Voletta Wallace, will helm the technology for the so-called "Humagram" of Christopher Wallace to perform in various capacities including on-stage delivery and music videos"..."The first order of business for the Biggie Humagram is a music video appearance for the first single off Faith Evans' duets compilation titled The King & I."
ARHT Media founder, Rene Bharti, told Billboard, "What we're gonna start with is a video with the first single from The King & I then I think Faith wants to do a little tour." The outlet goes on to relay that, "While he did not offer specific tour details, B.I.G.'s Bad Boy family, led by Puff Daddy, are set to perform a sold-out "One Night Only" show in Brooklyn's Barclays Center on May 20, Biggie's birthday."
In March, Faith Evans announced plans for a collaborative posthumous release with her deceased husband. Apparently, recording is in its finishing stages. The first posthumous B.I.G. album, Life After Death, was released in 1997, the year Biggie Smalls died. Since then, there've been two other posthumous B.I.G. albums; 1999's Born Again and 2005's Duets: The Final Chapter, which included previously unreleased B.I.G. verses remixed into duets. Faith Evans was among the cast of artists featured on Duets.
