Wu-Nuts: The Wu-Tang/Peanuts & Classic Hip Hop art mash-up.
I first saw this last week. After a little diggin’ I found that this art mash-up comes from artist Mark Drew who re-constructs the Peanuts with lines from classic Wu, Biggie, Nas, Digital Underground, N.W.A, Gang Starr and others. It’s part of an exhibit called Deez Nuts, first seen in an ezine of the same name
Nice, but let’s not forget the where the inspiration probably came from … respect the architects:
Da Mystery of Trophy Boxing: Almost two decades later, Ghostface Kkillah’s Ironman is still living life and it’s Golden.
Last up is Ghostface’s trophy box edition of his debut disc, Ironman,
nearly 17 years after its initial release put out by Boston-based reissue boutique label, Get On Down.
It includes a 24 karat gold disc for enhanced audio quality, a gold plaque, a jigsaw puzzle of the cover artwork and, if you order through their website, Get On Down will include two gold foil stickers, to boot.
Check their site for a cultural cornucopia of classics from the crates across numerous genres. Hopefully in the future I can do an in-depth piece with them. Until then, you can check for Get On Down’s doings daily at their blog.
