Jay Shells "Rap Quotes"

New York based artist Jay Shells has a new project called "Rap Quotes" in which he puts up various signs with, you guessed it, rap quotes. Shells noticed that many hip-hop songs called out exact locations, so he decided to make street signs with those lyrics to specifically hang in the locations mentioned. Putting the signs up is totally illegal, but Shells doesn't seem too concerned about that, especially since he figures the signs will get taken down by fans anyway. —Katie
