Posted in Art on November 25th, 2011 by Hyphen

If you’re a hip-hop fan with access to the Internet, you’ve surely seen Justin Bua’s iconic “The DJ” piece (below).  Following in that theme, Bua is releasing The Legends of Hip-Hop, highlighting some of our heroes and including his signature artwork for each.  In this promotional video, his daughter Akira helps out her daddy and shows a sneak peek of the book.  Looks dope.

Kaneda’s motorcycle comes to life…

Kaneda's Bike

This is old and happened way before TAOD was up and running, but it’s ill and Kanye just blogged it, so I thought I’d share. Neo Fukuoka built a fully function version of the motorcycle from the legendary Akira anime movie. I think I watched it for the first time in 4th grade and it was an instant classic. If you never made the connection, the cover of my last mixtape (I know…I haven’t put one out in ages…I’m trying to find time for Vol. 7) was based off the Akira cover. Shout to Adi & Nabs for the help on that!
