Singer Faith Evans recently appeared on the Dame Dash Radio show, teasing that a Biggie hologram performance could be in the works. "We actually are in development with a hologram [company] but I don't necessarily know to what extent I'm going to perform with it but I definitely want to debut it probably in the first video for the album and maybe use it a little bit performance-wise but that depends on a lot of things," she explained. Evans added, "If this Bad Boy [reunion] tour ever really happens, that might be something we might consider and if I was to go on that tour, of course, I'd use it but just not over-use it."

Rapper Lil' Kim also discussed working with the Bad Boy Fam. "I'm in my comfort zone when I'm with my Bad Boy family," the Lil Kim Season MC recently told Billboard. "We have a such an organic, natural connection when we're on-stage. It's perfect, it's fun. It's just second nature to me."

The sure-to-be-epic show, produced by Live Nation, will span Bad Boy Entertainment's hefty catalog over the past 20 years including Puff's recent sonic motion picture MMM, which included the hits "Workin," "Auction" and "You Could Be My Lover."

Tickets will be available on Saturday, April 2, at 11 a.m. local at www.livenation.com.
