SSUR is proud to announce the release of the Notorious BIG collaboration tee. The King of Brooklyn 3 style tee release, which is scheduled to drop early January of 2009, will be sold exclusively at SSURPLUS in NYC, online at www.ssurempirestate.com and selected boutiques around the world.
Widely acclaimed photographer Barron Claiborne’s portrait of B.I.G. (taken a couple of days prior to the tragic death) would become the last and most notorious image of the legendary rapper (as well as the most bootlegged hip hop photograph ever taken). Barron, a long time friend and patron of SSUR, collaborated on a triptych of tees celebrating the famed image, presenting a true depiction of this widely misused portrait in all media (and formats).
SSUR, also hailing from Brooklyn, NY, added his artistic take on the Claiborne reproduction by creating a morphing effect of guns. Depicting an image which ultimately caused the death and silencing of the lyrical genius.
