(Photos) DOPE! Nas Gets His Own Mural In His Hometown Of Queensbridge

Nas has repped Queensbridge since he got his start in the game, and his hood is showing him the love right back with a brand new mural. Yesterday, fellow QB native Havoc (of Mobb Deep) took to Instagram to share a picture of the mural, captioning it:

“#Queensbridge they just gave a long time friend from the hood a mural! He earned every last bit of that! @nas”

The artwork was a collaboration between 4 artists – Eli Eos (who curated the painting as well,) Jorit Agoch, Lawrence “Myse” Hosannah,and FCEE. It’s amazing! If you want to see the mural in person, it’s located on the corner of 40th Ave and 21st St. in Queens. If not, you can always just check out the pics below!


(Photos) @BrianniT Creator of Kanye West Art Show, is Back With Drake Inspired #ViewsExhibit

Art galleries are no longer just the home of the rich; Jay Z, Swizz Beatz and more have connected art to hip hop and helped give rise to an influx of talented urban artists.  Event producer Brianni Taylor found an awesome way to make that connection even more enjoyable.  Taylor decided to put together an art exhibit inspired by Kanye West‘s latest album, The Life of Pablo.  The reception was insane and soon Taylor had to split the one-day pop-up exhibit into three sessions in order to accommodate all the guests.  It was clear that she came up with something incredible and now she’s back with an exhibit inspired by Drake’s latest album, Views.  Armed with everything she learned from the first exhibit, and new creative ideas, Taylor’s #ViewsExhibit will have a Drake-inspired flavor by Mikey Likes It Ice Cream, a Drake based photo booth with props made by Taylor Made Greetings, an open bar with mixed drinks named after Drake songs, and an all Drake karaoke contest.
