The estate of The Notorious B.I.G. teamed up with Facebook’s parent company Meta to stage a virtual reality concert.
A “hyperrealistic” avatar of Biggie Smalls will perform his classic songs on Meta’s VR and Facebook platforms. The Notorious B.I.G. Sky’s The Limit: A VR Concert Experience is scheduled to premiere on December 16.
Fans will see a recreation of ‘90s Brooklyn called “The Brook” and follow a day in the life of The Notorious B.I.G. Veteran journalist Touré wrote and voiced the narrative journey.
Biggie’s VR concert will feature performances by Diddy, The Lox, Lil Cease, Latto and Nardo Wick. The metaverse event will also include a DJ set by Clark Kent.
“Having the ability to create a variance of new opportunity to showcase my son Christopher’s music through the advancement of technology is hard for me to grasp at times,” Biggie’s mother Voletta Wallace said. “However, I’ve found so much excitement in the process of developing his avatar, understanding the value added for fans to experience him in ways unattainable until now. Thank you to all who have contributed to bringing this project to fruition.”
