Three Fabricated Tombstones for an Unreleased Music Video
np: nd [c. 2002]. Three fabricated gravestone props, each made of foam over
plywood structures with a faux marble overlay.
The tombstones are for, respectively, Nasir Jones - with the legend “God’s
Son”, also the name of his 2002 album, Tupac Amaru Shakur (with the legend
“Outlaw”), and Christopher Wallace, aka “Notorious B.I.G.”, with the legend
“Brooklyn’s Finest.” Remarkable artifacts of self-historicization by a young black
poet and performer.
