17 years later, the former baby model who graces the cover of Notorious B.I.G.’s Ready to Die has finally come forward to identity himself.
18-year-old Bronx-native Keithroy Yearwood told the New York Daily News that his family received $150 for a two-hour session that landed him on the cover of Biggie’s debut album.
“It’s an honor to be on this album. I got chosen out of a lot of kids. I guess it’s the afro.”
