Tupac Biggie, designed by Mevis & van Deursen, presents a visual history of Dana Lixenberg’s iconic photographs of the legendary artists Tupac and Biggie. These photographs, commissioned by VIBE magazine in 1993 and 1996, have been appropriated until this day by innumerable admirers around the world. The book shows both shoots in their entirety for the first time and retraces the unforeseen trajectory and ubiquity of these images. The publication is accompanied by an essay written by Robert Kenner and a poem by Kevin Powel - both renowned contributors of VIBE magazine - as well as a large poster.
