Notorious B.I.G. heads to Metaverse

Written By Simon Mwebaze

The Metaverse has created a space for users to play games, enjoy art galleries, and interact with their favorite brands.

More so, it is bringing many famous people back to life, digitally. Recently, Christopher Wallace aka Notorious B.I.G.

Biggie’s estate is collaborating with Burst Live Inc. and Surreal Events. The collaboration will create a new virtual world called the Brook. What is the Brook? A reference to Biggie’s hometown Brooklyn.

Each collaborating company brings something unique to the table. Burst Live Inc. will create the content that will appear on the Brook, and Surreal Events will manage the development, hosting, and maintenance of the platform. But who will create the hyper-realistic model of Biggie? Have you heard of Remington Scott? If you have not, you may have seen Gollum in The Lord of The Rings, Spider-Man 2, and Spider-Man 3? Remington is responsible. He will also create Biggie’s model from images and videos of the late rapper.

What do you need to take part? Al you need is to create an account on the Brook website. Your account will allow you to access the Brook on a desktop or mobile device. Later this fall, there will be an activation that requires VR headsets.

Is that all? No! Users will be able to explore the virtual environment, buy virtual real estate in The Brook, attend concerts, and buy and sell NFTs.
