A color photograph of Alabama rapper The Last Mr. Bigg.
Bigg is pictured seated, wearing a green Chicago White Sox jacket and hat, and smoking.
He has a white gauze bandage over his proper right eye, with black sunglasses on top. The green baseball cap reads [SOX] diagonally in white. He is wearing a white ribbed shirt under the green jacket. There is a red "C" on the left side of the jacket, outlined in white and then yellow. The word [SOX] is on top of the "C" in white with a yellow outline. He has a goatee and long fingernails. He is holding a cigarette in his mouth with his right hand. His left hand is making a fist and is on top of a newspaper on his lap. He is sitting in a white chair and there is some house siding and a window visible behind him.
