Words From Artist
I was asked to create the poster for the “Kings Of The Mic” tour stop at the Greek Theatre in LA. The tour features some of my all-time favorites from hip-hop, plus my favorite DJ is Z-Trip, so I was incredibly hyped(believe the hype on this one!) to work on the project. In fact, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a lineup featuring acts this strong from hip-hop’s golden era. I’m tight with Z-Trip and I know LL so I think they are both going to sign the print. The price will depend on which signatures I can get, so stay tuned for that and the release date, but it will be sometime around the show on July 7. Word. -Shepard
