Hip-Hop Street Art
In this photo taken Friday, Feb. 21, 2014, street artist Jay Shells installs a hip-hop themed banner at the intersection of Sunset Blvd. and La Brea Ave., in Los Angeles. Shells was painting one day when he caught the name of a nearby intersection cited in a hip-hop song he'd been playing. How cool would it be, he thought, if someone would put up signs all over town referencing the places mentioned by Nas, Mos Def, Jeru, Kanye and others? (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes)
