These days the offspring of rap stars are taking ques from their famous parents and starting careers in show business. T.I.’s kids have clothing lines, albums and t.v. shows, Will Smith’s kids are…everywhere, Lil Wayne’s kids are writing books and making record deals, Diddy’s kids are modeling and making records and now the Notorious B.I.G.’s kids are starring in their own cartoon!
Christopher Wallace Jr. starred in the biopic about his late father in the film, Notorious. He has since appeared in several films playing opposite actors like Will Ferell. The actor and his big sister will be collaborating to star in a cartoon series about the life of a kid growing up with Biggy as a father.
According to EURweb:
*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.
