Sights & Sounds: Notorious B.I.G., "Juicy"



On March 9, 1997, the world lost the greatest rapper in history, but the music of Christopher Wallace has lived on. Today, we're launching a new section at Prefix -- Sights & Sounds, where a host of talented, insightful illustrators will recreate your favorite songs visually -- and, in honor of the Notorious B.I.G., we're setting it off with an interpretation of Biggie's "Juicy," by San Jose artist Pellet.

And because we learned long ago that you should never pass up a good opportunity, the video for "Juicy" is below.

I like the illustration, too, Pellet. I like your color choices, and how you mixed Biggie from the video into Biggie freestyling on the corner (everyone who hasn't seen it should watch it here: and then flattened out the perspective on what was obviously a very dynamic event and a heavily layered persona.

Awesome work. Awesome song. Awesome new section.

Yep, looks great. This section needs a sidebar over there >, because this will disappear off the front page soon-ish.

we're going to fix that eventually, but wanted to get this up sooner than later. might kill the left column for this section to make the image larger too.

"Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis/When I was dead broke man I couldn't picture this" = classic material...


I love it! What a great first piece for this section. Can't wait to see the other illustrations in the future.
