Biggie Smalls Is Due To Tour This Year - As A Hologram
The future is weird.
We are all aware of the recent developments in holographic technology which saw a very life-like Tupac Shakur performing at Coachella Festival in 2012.
According to Rolling Stone, they are not genuine holograms, but something very close to the real thing.
"Ironically, in its current version, hologram technology doesn't even produce what experts consider to be genuine holograms — fully three-dimensional light-forms."
Michael Jackson is another star who has been 'resurrected' using the decidedly creepy technology.
Biggie Smalls, who was killed in 1997, is joining the list of deceased celebrities who have been brought out to 'perform' using this technology.
Billboard report that Faith Evans will be using the technology to appear in a music video 'duet' wih her late husband, real name Christopher Wallace.
Commenting in a statement, Faith Evans said of the project, "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."
Biggie's mother added:
"This project has been a long-time coming, and it is very special to me. Words can't even capture how elated I am for the world to finally see my son again on stage and beyond.
"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.”
