Artists Fashion Notorious B.I.G.’s “Ten Crack Commandments” Out Of Actual Marble


Animal New York points us to the hip-hop-inspired art of Swyndle & Hawks, self-described “thieves” who “acquire…icons” only to “degenerate them from their exaggeration and leave them to their insignificance.” One piece from this year, entitled “10 Crack Commandments,” features the lyrics from the Notorious B.I.G. classic from 1997’s Life After Death chiseled into marble, no Moses. Commandments include, “Never let no one know how much dough you hold”; “Never let em know your next move”; “Never trust nobody,” and so on. A close-up photo:
