Although the news of the Meta group does not look good, the metaverse remains a priority for Mark Zuckerberg, who wants to democratize it. To do this, he always organizes events in this virtual reality world… And now, he brings the Notorious BIG back to life there, for a hyper-realistic virtual concert!
Go to the show!
Last October, Meta hosted a virtual haunted house experience with executive producer Eli Roth and actress Vanessa Hudgens. Then, another horror movie-inspired experience Boop comes from Horizon Worlds. Of course, Meta doesn’t stop there! On December 16, 2022 metaverse users will be able to attend a concert by one of the greatest rappers in history: Notorious BIG! A true legend who died 25 years ago.
The news quickly spread on the networks and especially through the Facebook page dedicated to the rapper: “Notorious BIG IS BACK. His music, his flow, his influence is unmatched. See it like you’ve never seen it before”.

The return of one of the greatest rappers on the planet
The famous concert of the Notorious BIG will be held in a virtual reproduction of the neighborhood of Brooklyn in the 90s. It is enough to bring a little loneliness to all fans of the rapper and children of “nighties” !
This event will be broadcast exclusively on the Meta platform, so you will need to use a Meta Quest headset to have the full virtual reality experience. Otherwise, a 2D broadcast is available on the Facebook social network.
With more than 11 billion streams recorded worldwide, the party is sure to be a blast. The rapper’s mother commented: “Having the ability to create a new opportunity to show my son Christopher’s music through the advancement of technology is sometimes difficult for me to understand”. However, he added: “I saw a lot of excitement in the process of developing his avatar, understanding the added value for fans to experience him from a inaccessible way until now. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the realization of this project ».
Undeniably, the metaverse pushes the limits of the impossible!
