Faith Evans has shared another from her forthcoming release ‘King & I’, an album that tells the story of the life and love of Faith and The Notorious B.I.G and will include unreleased vocals from the iconic rapper.
Faith and Biggie famously met at a photo shoot in 1994 and were married nine days later. What followed would become one of the most legendary love stories in hip-hop history. Now Faith has created a special release 20 years after B.I.G’s unsolved murder.
Features on the album include legends like Busta Rhymes, Lil Kim, Snoop Dogg and more. In addition, another special guest appearance Biggie’s mother Voletta Wallace providing narration throughout.
The latest release ‘Ten Wife Commandments’ is a play on one of Biggie’s biggest hits ‘Ten Crack Commandments’ but flipped into a woman’s perspective.

Talking about the track, Faith explained that it was the first song she started recording for ‘The King & I’.
“Excited and optimistic about the new deal & the opportunity to bring my idea to life, I started looking for Big’s acapellas on YouTube while in Detroit rehearsing with my band. With “Ten Crack Commandments” being one of the songs I had always wanted to redo, I found it and got to work! It took a few different sessions to get the commandments to be meaningful and clever, but I do feel these are points that both men and women can appreciate.”
