New York City’s Rap Lyric Landmarks (Video)

An art project by Jay Shells called Rap Quotes has him traveling throughout the city pinpointing locations mentioned in many of our favorite rap songs.  He then posts lyric signs that reference these locations.  New York City has long been against this practice and usually sends city workers to quickly remove them. Pretty cool if you ask us.
