#RIPBIG – 10 Crack Commandments (Designed by Keese Goood)
(May 21st, 1972 – March 9th, 1997)
Rest in peace to the greatest rapper of all time… Biggie Smalls the illest. It’s hard to believe nearly 15 years have passed since The Notorious B.I.G. was gunned down in the streets of Los Angeles. While his murder remains officially unsolved, the presence and influence of the man born Christopher Wallace still looms large over hip-hop.
The game has changed so much since Big’s passing. His career was born in a largely offline world. There was no blogosphere to build him up and later tear him down, no social networks to annoyingly promote his material… or let him embarrass himself. Big did it the old-fashioned way.. The right way. Word of mouth, radio spins, flashy videos, and talent galore.
