If you've been wondering who the baby on the cover of Biggie's 1994 debut album Ready to Die was, we finally have the answer (and no it was not B.I.G). After 17 years, the baby covering one of hip-hop's greatest albums ever created is 18-year-old Bronx native Keithroy Yearwood. The New York Daily News spoke with the teen who mentioned bragging to people that he was in fact the kid on the album's artwork but no one would believe him. His mother dug up baby pictures of young Keithroy to prove to the Daily News that he was indeed the afro-haired kid on the classic cover. Rap mystery: Solved.
