Sick Pics...

Above are a couple of my favorite Shawn Mortensen (RIP) hip hop pictures featuring the late great Notorious BIG (RIP). The first picture is BIGGIE in a red leather jacket, rockin 2 Jesus pieces with the Versasce shades. Awhile back FUCT released a t-shirt with the image in conjunction with Mortensen's new book, “Out of Mind”. Shawn remembers the shoot as being very upbeat and fun. He said Biggie was cracking jokes the entire time, (hence the big smile on Biggie’s face) This photo was shot at the Good Luck Bar in Los Angeles, California.

The second pic is the now famous BIG x BAPE pic in which Biggie has on a Bathing Ape Camo jacket LOOOOONG before it became mainstream. I've heard numerous stories but the one that seems to be real is that BIG didn't actually own the jacket it was someones at the photo shoot and they just draped it over him for the can see his left arm isn't through the sleeve so this makes sense.

Sadly Mortensen passed away on April 15, 2009, at the age of 43 but his legacy will live on through his pictures.
