Jay Shells Drops “Rap Quotes” On Street Signs in NYC

jay shells rap quotes

I love when artists take street art to the next level and Jay Shells has done just that with his latest art project. His love for hip hop and knowledge of hip hop lyrics shines through in his “Rap Quotes.” Shells made signs – that look pretty official – with famous hip hop lyrics that call out specific locations in New York City. In a little adventure that he documented, he takes us to the boroughs as he posts up his signs on the corners and blocks called out in notable songs. This is one of the coolest street art projects I’ve seen in a long time – check it out below…
