If you're familiar with any of these iconic images you're familiar with the work of photographer Chi Modu . Having served as the principle shooter for The Source magazine throughout the '90s, Chi's camera was the Bible of Hip-Hop's omnipresent roving eye, literally documenting artists as they went from unknowns in the publication's "Unsigned Hype" column to famed cover subjects. Recently our friends at Gas Face in France sat down with Chi to discuss some of the stories behind these indelible images, including his experiences with B.I.G. and 'Pac.
