Black Thought, Meek Mill, Danny Brown, Jay Electronica and Action Bronson among Rap Quotes installed in Philadelphia
Aug 30, 2014 8:56am | Fact Magazine

Art rap project moves to Philadelphia after New York and Los Angeles.

The Rap Quotes project is without a doubt one of the best art projects to deal with rap’s relationship with cities. Conceived and executed by Jay Shells, Rap Quotes involves the designer printing rap lyrics that namecheck specific locations onto official looking street signs before putting them up at the exact spot.

After starting in New York City in March 2013, Shells took Rap Quotes to Los Angeles earlier this year. He then returned to the Big Apple in the spring and this week he was in Philadelphia, putting up signs from the likes of Will Smith, Meek Mill, Action Bronson, Jay Electronica, Danny Brown and Black Thought across the city.

New York magazine Animal once more has a full gallery of Rap Quotes’ Philadelphia movements as well as a short interview with Shells on how locals received his artistic endeavours, including one older man who apparently ran out of his house in socks asking what was going on before approving of the project’s public art approach and noting that “Oh, okay, I know Jay Electronica, very good.”

Head over to Animal to view the whole gallery and words from Shells, as well as a video documentary of his Los Angeles efforts. We’ve selected a few of our favourites from the Philadelphia trip below. Next up is Atlanta and Shells also says...

Courtney Love: My memoir is a disaster
Aug 30, 2014 8:20am | Cosequence Of Sound

Courtney Loves long-awaited memoir, The Girl with the Most Cake, doesn’t seem to be hitting bookshelves anytime soon. Originally scheduled for release in December 2013, the autobiography remains unfinished and, according to Love, is a “disaster” and “nightmare.”

Speaking to Paper magazine (via ABC News Radio), Love said her relationship with the book’s ghostwriter is “just not working.” She added, “I never wanted to write a book in my entire life. It just sort of happened.”

If and when the memoir is released, it will cover Love’s life up until 2006 at which point it will end. “It has to stop,” she explained. “What happens from 2006 on in the book is my personal business. I’ve been discreet from that time on, and I want to keep it that way.”



Nas Time Is Illmatic documentary set for release on October 1, watch the trailer
Aug 30, 2014 8:07am | Fact Magazine

The celebrations for the landmark debut of Queensbridge’s finest culminate with release of documentary this October.

When Queensbridge rapper Nas released his debut, Illmatic, twenty years ago, people knew it was something special. Like all good things however, it has only gotten better with age.

Nas has been celebrating the album’s 20th anniversary all year long: first with the release of a deluxe edition and then with an extensive tour that saw him perform the classic to worldwide audiences. The celebrations culminate with the release of the Time Is Illmatic documentary this October.

Announced earlier this year, Time Is Illmatic was directed by One9 and looks at the making of Nas’ debut as well as the conditions that influenced its creation, the legacy of Nas’ family (his father was a jazz musician) and the reception it received from his peers.

A trailer for the documentary was released yesterday, which you can see below.

The documentary premiered at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival in April this year and will open on October 1 via Tribeca Film. It’s not clear at this time if the release date is US-only or worldwide.

On October 2 Nas will embark on another tour to celebrate the release of the documentary with screenings and performances of the album. See below for dates.
