READY TO DIE: A GROUP SHOW

In honor of the 20th anniversary of Biggie's iconic album, One Grand Gallery presents Ready to Die: A Group Show. Whether it is an illustration of the iconic painterly Coogi sweater the rapper was so well known for wearing or the “money-green leather sofa” he rapped about, Biggie and the Ready to Die album offer an unlimited source of creative inspiration and artistic license. The album presents hardship and struggle among humor and poetic symbolism, all testaments to the genuine talent that Biggie possessed that was as relevant in 1994 as it is in 2014.
