Waxpoetics – Inspiring look back

Yo, just got an email from Waxpoetics with a link to this short doc about the magazine. This shit is really a dope magazine if you love hip hop, funk, jazz, soul, electronic music, etc. At the time when WP came out I bought the first or second issue (Berkeley Ca 2001?) because it had some art from Style Wars on the cover (classic graff film). And when this video was filmed I was actually living in NYC and contributed an illustration of 9th Wonder to the Hip Hop issue. Peep that here.
To see John Carlucccio’s (Battle Sounds Doc) higher quality version of the video, go here.
In case you missed it, WP left the scene for awhile and now they’re back. Not only with new magazines fresh off a kickstarter, but also with new videos. Peep this one about Chicago DJs and musicians.
Curtis Mayfield, Ron Trent, Crate Diggers record fair.

9th Wonder-Waxpoetics

Back in 08 I had the pleasure of doing an illustration for two great entities. I’m not sure I ever posted it here but here it go.One of my favorite mags and one of my favorite producers. I actually got to see the brother live in Brooklyn that year too. Chevere! Click here to see the original issue.
