For the upcoming release of Black Apple x DJ Clark Kent's new mixtape, Black In The New York Groove, Black Apple founder Dao-Yi Chow hollered at illustrator Sophia Chang about designing a series of cover art that would capture the true essence of authentic New York. The talented artist nailed the challenge and created a total of 8 original covers to accompany the tape's release.

While we eagerly await the digital release of Black In The New York Groove later this week, which features an eclectic mix of tracks from French Montana to Fred Astaire, we were fortunate enough to speak with Sophia Chang about her involvement with the project presented by Hennessy Black.

Continue to check out a gallery of art work from Black In The New York Groove, and stay tuned for download instructions later in the week.
