Photos from the personal archive of Rob Stone
This past week, The Fader, released never-before-seen photos of the late Notorious B.I.G., as May 21st marked what would have been the rapper’s 42nd birthday. The photos are from the personal archive of The FADER’s co-founder Rob Stone, who served as VP of promotion during the promotional run for Biggie’s debut album, Ready to Die.
The article includes an excerpt where Stone recalls memories with Biggie, specifically in the early days when they were first trying to get the rapper’s music played on a mainstream radio station in LA. The rare photos take you back in time to B.I.G.’s early era in the industry, in true 90’s fashion, including other friends and artists such as Craig Mack, Sway and Funkmaster Flex.
