behind the scenes: JADAKISS / “LETTER TO BIG”

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…


*JADAKISS and ME. i was so geeked i wore a vintage COOGI sweater!


*this shoot couldn’t have gone smoother or more on time, in fact everything was ahead of schedule because JADAKISS came early. it’s something very unheard of in this business.


*also on set was GROOVY LOU, who styled B.I.G. back in the day. they all made me feel like family.


*BIGGIE chain by COMPLETE TECHNIQUE.


*JADA counting the spare change i had in my pocket.

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.
