*Notorious B.I.G.’s teen children, C.J., 16, and T’yanna, 19, will provide voices for their characters in the cartoon show, entitled “House Of Wallace.”
The rapper, born Christopher Wallace, will appear in “spirit” and guide his children through adversity while trying to keep their Brooklyn studio open.
“It’s been 16 years since our Dad was murdered and we miss him dearly,” the teens said in a statement. “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.
“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.”
The show has yet to be picked up by a network but a rep for Ossian Media, the video production company behind the series, insists “a few serious networks are in discussion,” according to the Associated Press.
*Fifteen years after his death, the Notorious B.I.G.’s daughter, T’yanna Wallace (pictured) had her first radio interview with Hot 97 on Wednesday.
She’s a Penn State undergraduate student and has few memories of her father.
Although those memories are faint, her mother, Jan Jackson, keeps her well informed and wallowing in the legend of her father.
“The older I get, I swear I fall in love with his music more and more,” she states. “I’m like, talent out the butt.”
Her favorite Biggie track is ‘Machine Gun Funk.’
Later in the interview, Jackson skirted the question of whether or not Diddy came to her with monetary assistance after B.I.G.’s death and explained what would happen if she were to see Lil’ Kim face-to-face.
