1. The Lyrics to Biggie’s “Juicy”… In Illustrated Form (GALLERY).

    Part of the late, great Christopher “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace ‘s immense talent as a lyricist was his ability to craft rhymes so memorable you could practically visualize them. Designer/illustrator/lettering artist Jay Roeder obviously agrees. Self described as being “addicted to drawing letters, lyrics and random stuff,” Roeder devoted a series of fly illustrations to Biggie’s lyrics from his breakthrough hit, “Juicy,” finishing one per week between April 2011 and May 2012 until (almost all) the words to the entire song were completed.

    So listen and enjoy this hip-hop classic whilst following the words as rendered by Roeder (with a few typos and certain few “conspicuous” lines missing). And if ya don’t know, now ya know, ninja.
