CelebnMusic247.com reports that the rapper’s vision began surfacing on social media earlier this weekend
Biggie Smalls is seen dressed in his signature style, wearing Versace sunglasses, a green Sergio Tacchini tracksuit with black and white details, and a pair of black and grey Air Jordan 1s on his feet. Any outfit isn’t complete without the right accessories, so the designers gave their creation a gold Jesus piece, a watch, and a black hat.
According to reports, some are freaked out by how real the hologram looks, while others think the idea is awesome.
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.
To some, seeing the late rapper “come back to life” was disturbing, but overall the Biggie hologram looks amazing:
One Twitter user wrote:
Keep that hologram of Biggie far away from me…Biggie hologram scary.
While another joked:
I thought that n*gga was gonna say ‘Baby Babyyyyy’!

Others, however, were pleased to see how real the image was, especially after the success Dr. Dre had with his Tupac hologram at Coachella back in 2012.
Well, you can all look forward to owning this new tech next year…Yes, they will have a two foot version available for you home, business or so fourth – estimated to cost around $2,500. dollars.
