Biggie Ready to Die Album cover baby is 18

Atoning because I nearly missed this…The Biggie Ready to Die album cover baby is 18! Yeah, just like you, I always thought that the photo on Biggie Small’s classic debut album Ready to Die might be an old Christopher Wallace photograph. How wrong I was! The photograph of the Afro wig wearing chubby cheeked baby had not been jacked from Violetta Wallace’s molding albums of Biggie before Biggie abandoned a future dental career and the straight and narrow path. Wrong! 

The baby on the album cover was Butch Blair, and he just turned 18 years old this year. Here’s a link. It feels great to finally have one more mystery cleared up about Biggie! 

There are a couple of others that I still have queries about…

"Blow up like the world trade..."
LLike is that photo of Biggie Smalls with the twin towers destroyed in the September 11, 2001 Al Queda attacks real or photo shopped? You know in Juicy Biggie raps, “Blow up like the World Trade…” & and we know how that ended.So how did Biggie know? Did he know?

I think it could have been from the first explosion on the World Trade...around 1994...

but ofcourse he like foretold the ensuing blow up years later...
