The inception of hip-hop has always been intertwined with the streets of cities like Detroit, Philadelphia, New York, and countless others across America. One art project tracing the stories between hip-hop and these cities includes the Rap Quotes Project.
Started by Jay Shells, the project involves design-printed rap lyrics, namechecking street names and specific locations they are placed at. The project first started in the Big Apple in March 2013, then went to Los Angeles to only return back to New York. This week, Shells is now in Philadelphia, putting up lyrics from Will Smith, Meek Mill, Action Bronson, Jay Electronica, Danny Brown, and Black Thought.
