The Notorious B.I.G. Hologram in NYC

Biggie Smalls would’ve celebrated his 50th birthday on May 21st, but since he’s no longer here to do that, his famous friends have gone above and beyond to make sure his legacy is remembered. While it’s been 25 long years since the “Big Poppa” artist was fatally shot, pals like Diddy and Lil Kim have hosted beautiful tributes in The Notorious B.I.G.’s honor, with the former even teaming up with Proto Inc. (a holoportation company allowing people to “beam” in real-time to places where they can’t physically be) to create a hologram of Biggie.
