Artist Jay Shells channeled his love of hip hop music and his uncanny sign-making skills towards a brand new project: “Rap Quotes.” For this ongoing project, Shells created official-looking street signs quoting famous rap lyrics that shout out specific street corners and locations.
Someone we all should know……David Adjaye.
David Adjaye (born 1966) is a world renown, prize-winning architect who was born in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, Africa. Adjaye currently lives and base his firm in London but maintains a home in New York City. He is undoubtedly one of the world’s preeminent living architects. His resume include designing both private and public structures on nearly every continent including the Harlem Affordable Housing Complex in Sugar Hill, NYC (shown above, first two photos) and The Pavilion for Miami Design and well as the Francis George Library in Washington, DC (shown above, last two photos). The Pritzker Prize is the “Oscar” of the architecture world, awarded annually to a sole architect for recognition of their body of work and many believe that Adjaye will be the first person of African descent to be awarded the Pritzker.

First person to end every sentence with “…it is what it is.”
This made me drop my drink. I am DONE
