"Biz's first promo poster featured an illustration of Biz on the throne. I was overjoyed when five years later, I got the chance to shoot it for real."
This image is an outtake of the front cover photograph for the Biz Markie 12" single T.S.R. (Toilet Stool Rap), 1991, Cold Chillin' Records.
George DuBose has been called “The Godfather of Hip-Hop Photography.” He was there when rap broke. Before it was called hip-hop. He was behind the camera for Biggie’s first professional photo shoot. While working with Cold Chillin’ Records, he immortalized Biz Markie, Big Daddy Kane, Masta Ace, Kool G Rap and Roxanne Shante. And the list just grew, including the likes of Run-DMC and Mobb Deep.
Now, House of Roulx is contributing in our own way by sharing DuBose’s works with both existing fans and an entirely new generation, so that they will also come to know the man who captured and help break the people who made music what it is today.
