This Is Hip Hop by DonVinzone This Is Hip Hop by DonVinzone
ENG:
My tribute to Hip Hop, tried to avoid the stereotypes of graffiti and breakdancers and all. Just the dead legends and the ones who defined the East and West.
Went back to the black-white-grey-red colors of my Abstract series because it fits the music I think.

NL:
Mijn eerbetoon aan hiphop, ik heb geprobeerd de standaard graffiti en breakdancers enz. te vermijden. In plaats daarvan alleen de dode legendes en de groepen/personen die West en Eastcoast rap hebben gemaakt tot wat het is.
Ik heb de zwart-wit-grijs-rood kleuren uit mijn Abstract-serie weer gebruikt omdat het past bij de rap muziek.

In short:
Program: Adobe Illustrator CS4
Time: 4-5 hours

KRS-One, Rakim & Chuck D defined the east.
Ice Cube & The D.O.C. defined the west.

What is a industry? Hip Hop's a culture, if that's what you're talking about?

"nah, never really been, except maybe when Arrested Development started."

You talk as if as "culture" as you call it, isnt big since it dosent make the big bucks in the world and gets played in white peoples homes or outside its own grounds. Its a industry to people like you who aint where its at; its clothing its Music its Movies do you know how much money there is in this "culture"?
I bet in the Netherlands you all have a deep connection to this "culture" that we here in the US dont have. lol


They dress like us They talk like us They walk like us,I scream fuck while the world is stealing our culture.

No, I just told you: it's a culture. And I know that corporate America and later the whole corporate world is now on it. I'm just telling how it was when it started.

I couldn't agree more, these 3 artists are a pure resemblance of what real hip hop is, and what hip hop use to be at one time. This is a very nice piece of artwork. I was wondering, maybe you would think about a quick one to help promote my upcoming album? I am all about real hip hop, check out my music on YouTube - YoungSlagle. Thanks!

Amazing detail!This is a very strong piece, I love how you choose the legends of the music not the stereotypical artists.The map of the USA in the background is a good choice and the vectors of the artists is great. Amazing Job!

First of all: thanks for the nice comment! :D I appreciate it a lot!

Second :P I'm glad you understand what I was going for with this piece, and you even noticed the map of the east and westcoast on the background.There is a lot going on in this piece, so those details might be hard to see clearly.
And thanks for the :+fav: too!
