NYC Street Signs Replaced With Rap Lyrics
Artist Jay Shells pays tribute to the Big Apple's music culture with a series of placards peppered across the city.
It’s not everyday that street signs speak the language of rap. Artist Jay Shells decided to put a new spin, however, on the standard message and installed several signs that feature lyrics from rappers like Jeru tha Damaja, Kanye West and CL Smooth. Messages such as “Cause I want to be on 106 and Park pushing a Benz” (Kanye West) were splashed all over New York City.
Animal posted a video as one of its members cruised the city with Shells, videoing and photographing the artist while he carried out his project.
