This is a piece I first had the opportunity to view when I spoke to Motion about doing a piece for the Hip Hop Homage site. When I read the piece I put some simple graphics to it in order to post it. A short time later Motion contacted me inquiring about putting some visuals to the piece and we started to brainstorm what we’d like to see. I thought having ZIon in it would be important and Motion whole heartily agreed. And he was down to be apart of it. We had a great team shoot day. Shouts to my other camera man Robbie J, My son Origin who handled lights and anything else we asked. Motions hair was done by Safiyah’s House of Creations, And Locations, make up and styling was done by Sonilda Teaque. Shouts to Supa 83, Kolor Brown,Fresh Kilz, King RC who all had a hand in creating the soundscape. Today we learned that a legend the King of Style Kase2/Case2 has passed away and we wanted to drop this piece today in celebration of his Life and his impact on the graffiti movement. Also with Loving memory of Ramsay Jones who gets a special dedication on the wall. Motion and Myself would like to thank all the people that were involved in the project. And those writer’s who have given us impactful and beautiful art to inspire our works.
My bad, this was one that fell through the cracks over the last couple days..
Happy birthday and congrats to 6th Letter on The Smokers Club Tour placement.. Sooo many of these young dudes just below the radar coming out of the city with great potential.. Toronto would be an A&R’s wet dream… if A&R’s still existed, lol..
