Quoting The Streets

Artist Jay Shells channeled his love of hip hop music and sign-making skills towards a project he dubbed 'Rap Quotes.' For this ongoing project, Shells created official-looking street signs quoting famous rap lyrics that shout out specific street corners and locations - then installed them at those specific spots.
