SO DOPE!: Street Artist Posts Rap Lyric Signs Around NYC
I stumbled upon this article on Mashable about a New York City based street artist Jason “Jay Shells” Shelowitz who’s started a new project titled“The Rap Quotes”. Apparently, he’s posting signs ‘featuring famous hip-hop lyrics at the exact locations mentioned in each song.” How cool is this?!
“I was listening to music at home, working and heard myself rapping along to Big L’s ‘Lifestylez Ov Da Poor and Dangerous’, which says ’ … on 139 and Lenox Ave. there’s a big park, and if you soft don’t go through it when it gets dark,’” he told Mashable.
“I just thought it would be cool to mark that location with the quote so passer-bys knew it was a part of New York’s hip hop history.”
Check out the full article and see signs that include lyrics from Jay-Z, Biggie Smalls, Mos Def, Nas, Kanye West, Busta Rhymes & more! I love my Hip-Hop culture & I salute anyone who embraces it and does creative things like this to express their love as well! xo @rozOonTheGo
