Jay Shells “RAP QUOTES” project combines rap lyrics and street art

Street artist Jay Shells has a new project that brings together rap lyrics with the places that inspired them. Shells creates official-looking street signs quoting famous rap lyrics that shout out specific street corners and locations. He then installs them at those specific street corners and locations. So far he posted over 30 signs quoting the likes of Jeru tha Damaja, Mos Def, Nas, Kanye West, CL Smooth, GZA, and RA the Rugged Man. Follow @TheRapQuotes for more. Watch a short documentary on the project above, and see the signs in their new homes in the gallery below. (via Animal New York)
