Faith Evans Details Notorious B.I.G. Duets LP ‘The King & I’

Faith Evans has detailed her Notorious B.I.G. duets album The King & I, which features both well-known and unheard verses from the late rapper. The 25-track album is due out May 19th, two days before Biggie's birthday.

The album's guests include Biggie associates like Lil Kim and the Lox's Sheek Louch, Styles P and Jadakiss (on "NYC") as well as Snoop Dogg ("When We Party"), Busta Rhymes, Notorious actor Jamal Woodard (who portrayed Biggie on the big screen) and B.I.G.'s mother Voletta Wallace.

"I remember telling Ms. Wallace years ago that one day it would be really dope if I could do something similar to Natalie & Nat King Cole's Unforgettable," Evans said in a statement. "Knowing the love that B.I.G. had for [his kids] Tyanna & Ceejay, I feel it's my duty to uphold & extend his legacy, especially his musical contributions. This project is my creative reflection of the love we had & the bond we will always have. I'm elated to share this musical journey with our fans!"

Voletta Wallace provides a "poignant narration" in The King & I interludes. DJ Premier, Just Blaze, Salaam Remi and Stevie J are among the producers recruited to work on the project.
