Notorious B.I.G.'s children will star in a new animated series about the late rapper's recording studio. According to the Associated Press, House of Wallace features 16-year-old C.J. and 19-year-old T'yanna Wallace as they maintain the Brooklyn studio and defend it against a larger company. Notorious B.I.G. will appear in "spirit" and offer guidance to the youngsters as they hold down the studio. The show will also feature appearances from musical guests.

House of Wallace has yet to find a home, though a representative for the show from Ossian Media says they're in discussion with "a few serious networks." Notorious B.I.G., born Christopher Wallace, was killed by a drive-by shooting on March 9th, 1997. He was 24. His autopsy report was released last December and indicated that only one bullet killed the rapper, though he was shot four times.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
