RareInk's 2pac

"When I got asked to be part of the Biggie and Tupac project, I immediately felt the massive weight of representing these two legends adequately. Their contribution and cultural impact is unmeasurable--not to mention their unresolved, sudden and tragic deaths. My goal was to capture each man as if he stood 100 feet tall. Their names and aliases are layered over 2 dozen times, with meticulously hand painted tags and logos. Then above, their statuesque portraits rising above and looking towards even greater heights. Even though, they are no longer physical present, the influence that Biggie and Tupac have on me and millions of other fans and artists alike has has yet to see it's peak. It was an honor to be a part of this project" said Bask.
