Could A Faith Evans & Notorious B.I.G Album Be In The Works?

The answer to that question is YES!

 

R&B legend Faith Evans announced the release of her new collaborative album with her former husband, the late hip hop rapper and pioneer Notorious B.I.G, due two days before what would have been the rapper's 45th birthday - May 19th.

 

The 15-track album, which is entitled 'The King and I' will use some of the rapper's unreleased vocals combined with Faith's newly recorded lyrics alongside features from Busta Rhymes, Jada Kiss, Lil' Cease, Lil' Kim Sheek Louch, Styles P and Snoop Dogg.

 

In a recent statement Faith Evans spoke on the new project saying: 

 

 "I remember telling Ms. Wallace [the rapper's mother] years ago that one day it would be really dope if I could do something similar to Natalie and Nat King Cole's Unforgettable. Knowing the love that B.I.G. had for Tyanna [his daughter] & Ceejay [his son by Evans], I feel it's my duty to uphold and extend his legacy, especially his musical contributions."

"This project is my creative reflection of the love we had and the bond we will always have," she added. "I'm elated to share this musical journey with our fans!"
