street world

I had the chance to peruse this book when I was out in LA a couple weeks ago. Street World: Urban Culture and Art from Five Continents is co-authored by Roger Gastman, Caleb Neelon, and Anthony Smyrski and in the publisher’s words “is the first book to record the whole phenomenon” of global street culture. There is one photo of the DMS (Doc Marten Skins) that is incredible.

You may or may not have heard that Hollywood is doing a movie on Biggie Smalls. But, who will play the part of the famous dead rapper? Over the weekend there was a casting call for the main part in NYC. Around 100 people showed up, which to be honest does not sound like that much. Anyway, NyTimes has a slideshow of some of the candidates. My pick is above. (Thanks Hallie!)

blast from graffiti past

Sifting through some stuff over the weekend, I came across a series of envelopes from one of my old graff mentors, Sope (RIP). This is from 1994 when him, Jase, Neon, and Zombie hit some trains from the Golden Gate Railroad Museum. If you would like a full scan of the article, email me. More after the jump.

I remember seeing these paintings in the background of a post on kaws’ blog on honeyee. It turns out that the Peyo-tribute Smurf paintings were commissioned by none other than Pharrell Williams of Neptunes fame for his Miami apartment. It is nice to see that smart rap stars invest in, and appreciate quality art (Kanye too). More pics after the jump. via, highsnobiety from BBC
