Faith Evans Discusses The Notorious B.I.G. Duet Album ‘The King & I’


(AllHipHop News) Are you ready for more music from Christopher “The Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace? The late Hip Hop legend’s rhymes are set to be part of a joint project with R&B singer Faith Evans. Biggie’s former wife appeared on The Dame Dash Radio Show to discuss the upcoming LP.

“Right now I’m recording this project, a duet album with me and B.I.G. called The King & I. That’s something I’ve been thinking and talking about doing with Ms. Wallace for a long time,” said Evans. “I’m kind of in the finishing stages.”

The posthumous Biggie album Born Again was released in 1999, two years after his death. In 2005, Bad Boy Records dropped Duets: The Final Chapter which consisted of collaborations with Diddy, Eminem, Jay Z,  Nas, T.I., Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Missy Elliott, and more. Faith expects The King & I to present a fresh version of the icon’s lyrics.

“I had no idea how I was even going to go about it, but it’s been coming along pretty awesome,” Evans added. “If he was alive, I know ultimately we would have done something like this. But the way this stuff is coming together and the way I’m using his vocals, it’s giving this stuff new life. I think people are really going to enjoy it.”

Faith also hinted a hologram of Biggie could be used in future performances of songs from the album. Music videos from the King & I are expected to be released as well.
