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.

“Bizness”

Tune-Yards | 2011

The opening track to Merrill Garbus’ second album under the Tune-Yards banner (she also plays in the trio Sister Suvi), “Bizness” is a song about relationships that is as colorful as the face paint favored by Garbus both live and in her videos. Disjointed funk bass, skittering African beats, diced-and-sliced horns and Garbus’ dynamic voice, which ranges from playful coos to throat-shredding howls, make “Bizness” reminiscent of another creative medium. “I'd like for them not to be songs as much as quilts or collages or something,” Garbus said.
