The artist Jay Shells has been a huge topic of conversation at complex all year. He first caught our eye in March, with his “Rap Quotes” project, where he posted lyrics to well-known rap songs at their actual referential locations throughout New York City, landing him on our list of the most important artists of 2013. Later, he added Seinfeld-related movie posters to the streets of New York, making us wonder about one girl’s erotic journey from Milan to Minsk.
Shells is back. He’s hit the West Coast, traversing the streets of Los Angeles to post up a new version of his project that got all of New York buzzing. So far, we’ve seen these shots featuring quotes from Murs, Action Bronson, Snoop Dogg, Lupe Fiasco, Bun B, and Hodgy Beats. Dude definitely knows his rap. Check them out and keep us posted if you spot any more of the signs around town.
