Wave your hands in the a-yah because it's day you've been waiting for all year, Biggie Smalls' birthday. The Black Frank White would have turned 42 today, and what better way to celebrate his legacy than with some dope artwork?

Los Angeles-based mixed media stencil artist Hero (aka The Forged Hero) created limited edition prints of the notorious one that use a familiar portrait in a new and very cool way. Hero uses brightly colored Basquiat-esque crowns to recreate the iconic Coogi sweater on the 24"x36" hand-signed, hand-embellished prints. Head over to checkthisink.com now to grab one before they're gone. Also, check out Hero's Instagram for more dope art and to see when the artist paints his Biggie mural in Brooklyn.
