Legends Never Die (Ultra Limited Bonus Track Picture Disc) by Markus Oberndorfer
‘Legends Never Die’ is tagged on the graffiti portrait of rapper Biggie Smalls loosely wearing a crown. One of many visual translations made based on the famous photograph Barron Claiborne took during the ‘King Of New York’ shooting for Rap Pages in 1997, only days before B.I.G.‘s death. The quote ‘Legends Never Die', Markus Oberndorfer used as a title for his 2015 exhibition, apparently originates from baseball legend Babe Ruth. In full length it reads: ‘Heroes get remembered, but legends never die.’ The legend around Biggie Smalls goes as far as Barrack Obama mentioning him during his infamous speech at the 2011 White House Correspondents' Dinner about Donald Trump. Listen for yourself. © Markus Oberndorfer 2015.
