THE RAP QUOTES  |  @TheRapQuotes

The Rap Quotes (@TheRapQuotes) campaign attempts to catalog all site-specific rap lyrics by installing them as street signs in the exact locations mentioned. The project is ongoing indefinitely. So far, over 75 signs have been installed in New York, over 100 signs have been installed in Los Angeles, 22 have been installed in Philadelphia and 27 installed in Atlanta . All have since been stolen/removed. Houston is next, followed by Chicago, New Orleans, The Bay Area and more. All major cities in the US will be visited before the project moves over seas. If you have site-specific lyrics you think should be included in the project, please send them to me here or tweet to @TheRapQuotes.

After schooling New Yorkers on etiquette via numerous unsanctioned interventions, 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.
