Taking lyrics from well-known rap songs, artist Jay Shells creates street signs and installs them at the physical locations referenced on the tracks. The "Rap Quotes" project is one of the greatest hip-hop themed street art projects of all time, and it just got a necessary update with Shells' trip down to Atlanta.
Having already installed signs on the streets of Los Angeles, New York, and on the walls of Gallery 1988 for an exhibition around this time last year, it was only right that Shells visit one of the culture's most important cities. Armed with rap quotes by Canibus, Andre 3000, Killer Mike, Bubba Sparxxx, Big Gipp, Jermaine Dupri, and other legends, the artist and his team hit the Waffle Houses, strip clubs, and other key locations.
