Trace / Notorious B.I.G. / 2005

text + photography by Simon Wheatley

A few photos from Trace magazine’s photo vault.  Did anyone see the biopic of B.I.G? The makers of this movie are suffering from amnesia.  I was in the mix when BIG dropped his first single and album, was part of the BIG vs Tupac debate before their beef started.  All the chicks used to rave on at how batters Wallace was, but the charisma would have had anyone of us in jockey style position riding for all we were worth.  When he performed in Hammersmith Palais (RIP) it wasnt Craig Mack we went to see, nah mate, and no Diddy did not rap then and if he did no one paid attention. They really should have waited for my generation to die out before making that movie.
