Taking more inspiration from the Tupac hologram than the harsh lessons of “Ghost Dad,” C.J. and T’yanna Wallace have announced they are shopping a cartoon based on their famous father, The Notorious B.I.G.

The now deceased rapper’s children along with Ossian Media to produce a cartoon called “House of Wallace” that will feature their dad as a ghost.

“It’s been 16 years since our dad was murdered and we miss him dearly,” the girls said in a news release. “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.”

They call it an “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 Wallaces will voice their own characters and are hoping to attract famous musical artists to make guest appearances.

The show will focus on how 16-year-old C.J. and her sister, 19-year-old T’yanna, try to keep their father’s recording studio from the clutches of an evil “entertainment factory” buyout.

Christopher Wallace—also known as The Notorious B.I.G. and Biggie Smalls—was killed in a drive-by shooting in Los Angeles.

Ossian representatives told The Los Angeles Times that “a few serious networks are in discussions” to broadcast the show.
