Notorious B.I.G.'s Ghost to Appear in 'House of Wallace' Cartoon
Rapper Notorious B.I.G.’s teenage children will pay homage to their famous father in a new cartoon called “House of Wallace.” The show will take place in Biggie Smalls' Brooklyn studio, and the musician, who was killed in a drive-by shooting 16 years ago, will appear as a ghost in the show.
The project, helmed by C.J. Wallace, 16, and T’yanna Wallace, 19, follows the children as they try to save their dad’s studio from an international music conglomerate. The kids write jingles to get by, while also focusing on their own music projects.
B.I.G.’s ghost will serve as guide and mentor to the teens, who told the L.A. Times in a statement that they “miss him dearly.” Music will be central to the show, including original songs by guest stars and music from Wallace’s own collection.
“It is such an honor for us to be able to carry on his legacy, not only through his music but also by channeling him through our own creativity,” C.J. and T’yanna said in the statement. “This project, 'House of Wallace,' is a great opportunity for us to bridge the gap between our parents, who loved his music, and the kids and young adults our ages, that were not around to really appreciate it.”
A rep from Ossain Media told the Times that the show has not been picked up yet, however, "a few serious networks are in discussion."
