I wanted to follow up on Wednesday's post on artist Jay Shells, who put up the amazing Rap Quotes street signs in New York's boroughs. Each official-looking sign was located specifically on a corner mentioned in a NY-based song. For instance, a sign was placed in the Marcy Projects with the lines "Cough up a lung where I'm from, Marcy son, ain't nothing nice" via Jay-Z's "Where I'm From."
It turns out Animal New York followed Shells as he put up the signs, and the result was a terrific video that let Shells explain the project in his own words. (It answers one thing I wondered at the time, which is that, yes, he expected the signs to be stolen very quickly.) It'd be criminal to not post the short clip. Enjoy.
