(GEMS RADIO)—Notorious B.I.G. is about to get the virtual reality treatment. He will appear as on stage avatar for Meta Horizons World. Biggie is ready to rock the metaverse. The concert entitled, “Sky’s the Limit” will also feature his mentor/label boss, Sean “Diddy” Combs, as well as The Lox, Biggie’s Junior M.A.F.I.A. mate Lil Cease AND Latto, Nardo Wick, DJ Clark Kent and Eli Fross.
The hour long concert will take place on Dec. 16 at 9 p.m. ET on Facebook and Meta VR. “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,” said the late MC’s mother, Voletta Wallace, in a statement. “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.”
The Notorious B.I.G. was killed in a drive by shooting in Los Angeles in 1997. His murder is still unsolved. The concert celebrates what would have been Biggie’s 50th birthday.
