I don’t pretend to know much about rap and even used to refer to Busta Rhymes as Buster (yeah, I know…) but I got a kick out of this project: Graphic artist Jay Shells brought together his love of rap and his keen sign-making abilities in his street art project titled The Rap Quotes. He made 30 official-looking street signs with rap lyrics that cite specific locations and posted the signs at those very locations. Everyone from Mos Def to GZA, Puff Daddy to Kanye West, and more are quoted.
I have to give a nod to a friend who had another rap lyric-related project idea a while back that we briefly worked on together: rap tees. Who knows? Could still happen…
You can follow @TheRapQuotes for more on Shells’ project.
Now this is hillarious! Where does a brother get a sign like this or buy one of these signs? i could do so much awesome stuff with them. I like how you go around just soliciting the damn sign lmao. Great share. I gotta share this too. Seems like something that would go viral on rap genius or something. God Speed
