Williamspoint Photos du Jour: Biggie Smalls

Walking around the junk shop is always fascinating. I am especially fond of poking through the nooks and crannies where people (presumably clients) like to stash stuff. Most of the time I find pornography carefully hidden for later delectation. Yesterday I found just that and something else…

Polaroids of Biggie Smalls.

My taste in rap tends to lean (very) old school: N.W.A., Run D.M.C., Public Enemy and Beastie Boys mostly. I do not think I have ever listened to Biggie Smalls— but I know who he is. But dead celebrities are not why I am sharing these photographs. Rather, I’d like you to take a good hard look where he is.

Looks a helluva lot like Greenpoint if you ask me!

  4. I really like those snaps, regardless of the status of the characters in them! Moody and longing.

  8. these are very, very cool. As far as biggie goes, start with ready to die, and because the internets loves you, the original (and better) version of ready to die was just released for free. This has much more raw (read: less overproduced) beats and no puff daddy whispering stupid shit the whole time. prepare to have your life changed, or whatever. 2dopeboyz.com/2008/08/01/notorious-big-ready-to-die-originals/

Tell me what you're thinking...
