Larry Busacca/WireImageThe image of the late Notorious B.I.G. will soon appear on stage again, courtesy of new technology.
Billboard reports that the late rapper’s mother Voletta Wallace, and former wife, Faith Evans, have granted permission to ARHT Media to create a digital image for concerts and music videos. Instead of using the term hologram, the company calls the product created by their new technology, a “humagram.”
“Words can’t even capture how elated I am for the world to finally see my son again on stage and beyond,” says Ms. Wallace. “Christopher’s impact and legacy will not only live through his past work, but also the new experiences which have been made possible through ARHT Media.”
Evans comments, “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.” She adds, “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.”
The album will be a duet affair featuring B.I.G.’s vocals, and is expected to be released in September. The humagram will make its debut in the video for the first single from the album.
