Christopher George Latore Wallace (May 21, 1972 – March 9, 1997), best known for his artistic name, Notorious B.I.G., was an American rapper from New York. In his musical career he released two albums, followed four more after his death. In 1994, Notorious released his first album, Ready to Die. At the same time, he developed a personal fight with Tupac Sacour, which was also recorded musically through some «song-attacks» the two rappers exchanged. The deaths of these men were interpreted as the culmination of this controversy, but there is no evidence to link the two murders. The title of illustration “Born Sinner” is taken from the lyrics of the song “Juicy” that reached the top of the charts in 1994. The design was based on the rough lines of the pencil to form, finally, the figure of the late notorious big. An Illustration devoted to one of the most talented representatives of the 90’s urban culture
