T'yanna and CJ Wallce, the kids of the late rapper "Biggie Smalls," will star in a new animated series entitled "House of Wallace," reveals the Associated Press.
Sixteen years after the premature death of Notorious B.I.G, the two children will pay homage to their superstar father in this new show where the rapper's character will appear in "spirit" and "guide them through the adversities they face."

"House of Wallace" is anchored around 16-year-old C.J. Wallace -- who Biggie had with his wife, R&B singer Faith Evans -- and 19-year-old T'yanna Wallace, as they fight to maintain their father's New York City recording studio and preserve his legacy, Ossian Media announced.
LA Times notes that the series takes its name from the studio that the Brooklyn-bred rapper, born Christopher Wallace, built once his career took off.
The show's plot traces the kids' attempt to curb an international music conglomerate from buying the studio and replacing it with a more cookie-cutter "entertainment factory." It's up to Wallace's kids to re-energize the studio and elevate it to the status of a modern hit-maker.
It is said that C.J. and T'yanna will voice their own characters on the animated show. "House of Wallace" is also expected to feature original songs from guest stars and re-imagined renditions of Biggie classics like "Juicy," "Hypnotize," and "Mo' Money, More Problems."
"It's been 16 years since our Dad was murdered and we miss him dearly. 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," his children wrote in a statement. "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 children's father was killed in a drive-by shooting on March 9th, 1997 in Los Angeles at the young age of 24. His autopsy report was released last December and indicated that only one bullet killed the rapper, though he was shot four times, LA Times states.
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."
The legacy of the late great Christopher Wallace a.k.a. The Notorious B.I.G will live on through his kids and the new animated show.
