J Dilla Print by Obey

leave a comment »

J Dilla aka Jay Dee aka “your favorite producer’s favorite producer” has had such an amazing impact on the music industry since his death 3 years ago, as people continue to support his legacy. Here Obey takes effect to a classic Dilla photograph (just like the Obama Change print) in honor and support of the late J Dilla.

“Shepard Fairey alongside Brian Cross (B+) has also joined the cause with a special print of J. Dilla based on a 2003 photograph. In a run of 400, the prints will release on February 20th at a retail price of $55 USD (18 in x 24 in).”

For more on the event and info on Brian Cross’ own experiences with Dilla, check ObeyGiant.com.

Adventures in Boston: Valentine’s Day Weekend

with 3 comments

Back from a very nice Valentine’s Day weekend in Boston with a few random pics for you.

1st stop was out to Re-Up to talk some ish with my boy Ezra and pick up a new MHI jacket. Also a full Re-Up post coming in a day or so for the Boston heads.

Then all weekend I kept seeing some of the street art that got Obey’s Shepard Fairey arrested. I’m sure you saw it somewhere that he was taken in by the police after plastering his images all over Boston just last week. Well these are just 2 of the ones I saw. The one below was pretty cool to see driving as it’s in a huge intersection in Chinatown.

Then grabbed some amazing dim sum with the misses.

Every time I drive by this community rowing center I want to take a picture and I finally pulled over and did so. Not only is the design just beautiful, it’s in the open by itself so it looks even more epic. There is a full glass structure that holds the boats right next to it also.

Then, sadly, it was back on the road to Syracuse…..
Yea prolly not safe to take pictures while you’re driving, I know.

I’ll be back shortly with that Re-Up store profile, a Faces in the Crowd post and much more.

SwaggerDap.com baby, it’s a new beginning.
