(1000 items available)
This title is a visual catalogue of site-specific rap lyrics by multi-disciplinary artist Jay Shells (Jason Shelowitz) in New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Houston, and more. Part art book and part guide book, this publication takes you on a new kind of journey, with gorgeous photography by Aymann Ismail to offer context for the hip hop lyrics that mark locations in these major cities. With lyrics from Jay Z, Snoop Dogg, Andre 3000, and more. Each city/chapter opens with remarks by local hip hop journalists and ends with a map plotting every site-specific rap lyric for that city, giving the reader the ability to take their own hip hop-specific tour of the city they love. The Rap Quotes campaign is ongoing, and in the next few years will launch in Chicago, New Orleans, Miami and other cities around the globe.
