it went down on FRIDAY. i was so excited to be directing a video for the NOTORIOUS soundtrack. this is the closest i could get to an icon that had a major effect on my life, i was very honored to be apart of it!
it was my third time working with JADAKISS (1st, styling him for the BBC lookbook/catalog. 2nd, directing him in the JOSH EXANTUS video “Let’s Ride”). he’s easy going and super hilarious.
ONSMASH also posted before i did…
THIS IS THE ACTUAL CHAIR THAT BIGGIE SAT IN!
of course, everyone was so excited the actual chair was on set that we all had to take pictures in it!
by the end of the shoot, GROOVY LOU handed me a bottle of DON P. from 1995 and asked me to open it in honor of BIG and this video so we could toast in his memory. i was speechless. i popped the bottle and HARVE PIERRE toasted to BIG and to having me apart of it as a new director.
