Hip-Hop Street Art
In this photo taken Friday, Feb. 21, 2014, a pedestrian passes by a picture of a hip-hop themed sign at the intersection of Sunset Blvd. and La Brea Ave., in Los Angeles. Street artist Jay Shells installed the sign after one day when he caught the name of a nearby intersection cited in a hip-hop song he'd been playing. Shells has put up scores of carefully drawn, hand-screened signs featuring the words of other rappers. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes)
