The Notorious B.I.G. will live forever, and is coming back to our ears with a duet album coming soon. The album will be with none other than Faith Evans and called The King & I. The singer, who previously mentioned the album in an interview in 2014, recently appeared on the Dame Dash Radio Show to give fans an update. Faith has been working with Biggie’s mother Voletta Wallace on the album as well:

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

When asked how she plans on performing the album, Faith responded,

“We actually are in development with a hologram [company] but I don’t necessarily know to what extent I’m going to perform with it but I definitely want to debut it probably in the first video for the album and maybe use it a little bit performance-wise but that depends on a lot of things. If this Bad Boy [reunion] tour ever really happens, that might be something we might consider and if I was to go on that tour, of course, I’d use it but just not over-use it.”

After Dame suggested that Faith puts together a story about her relationship with Biggie, she said she wanted to put the album together properly:

“I want to do something like that on this album actually. I’m not trying to re-do what Puff has already done [Ed: Diddy released the set Duets: The Final Chapter in 2005] and have a gang of features, just the right ones that make sense but there’s other creative ways I can intertwine people that knew him and actually have stories to tell about him.”

Evans also said she’s written a play based on her 2009 book Keep The Faith: A Memoir. Check out her full interview with Dame below:
