An Education on Hip Hop
Artist Jay Shells loves hip hop. Meticulously listening to rap lyrics containing geographic points in New York, Jay makes it his duty create and post the relative words to it’s corresponding block. For the rest of New Yorker’s (or visitors) this converts New York streets into a sort of museum of the genre paying homage to names such as Kanye, Jay-Z, Big Daddy Kane, Nas, and Mos Def. You can see his process here in this video.
