Street artist Jay Shells has a new project that brings together rap lyrics with the places that inspired them, putting up custom signs of lyrics like Big L’s “On 139 and Lenox Ave There’s a big park, and if you’re soft don’t go through when it gets dark” right where they belong.

Watch a short documentary on the project above, and see the signs in their new homes in the gallery below.
