This iconic photograph of The Notorious B.I.G. was shot in the summer of 1994, a few months before the release of his first album Ready To Die. It was published in Interview Magazine in November of the same year.

It is one of a series of medium format portraits I took of Biggie on the streets of Brooklyn.

Before The Notorious B.I.G. was dubbed the “King of New York” by The Source in 1995, and before he released his first album Ready to Die. I photographed him on the streets of Brooklyn for Interview. This was one of the first in-depth features on Biggie ever published. But after delivering the prints to the magazine’s art department I lost the negatives. This was long before digital when pictures could be backed up. Without the negatives none of these historic photographs were ever printed or seen again.

Until now. Twenty-one years later, miraculously, the negatives turned up in the most unexpected of places. I was ecstatic. It was like unearthing a time capsule filled with rare and valuable artifacts.
