Okay, so this might be one of the coolest ideas ever. Rappers always rep where they’re from, so why not put up street signs at the actual intersections or neighborhood where famous lyrics came from?
Artist Jay Shells took the time to make signs and put them all over New York City. You might even see them in your own neighborhood. (Well, if you live in New York City.) Lyrics from the greats — Big L, Big Daddy Kane, Jay-Z, Mos Def, among others, were used. There’s a total of 30 signs in all. It’s a dope — yet simple — concept. Take a look at the pictures and the video.
