Watch Street Artist Jay Shells Drop “Rap Quotes” All Around New York City

Artist Jay Shells has quite an inventive street art project. He has channeled his love for hip-hop by producing some unique signs under a project called “Rap Quotes.”

For the project (which reportedly is still going), Shells has made street signs that have famous rap lyrics shouting out certain street corners and locations. If that wasn’t enough, he installs each sign at their exact spots.

Shells is pretty passionate about the project. He went all over the city and posted over 30 signs quoting the likes of Mos Def, Nas, Kanye West, CL Smooth, Prodigy, GZA and more. Watch the video above that documents it all.
