Last night was awesome. I painted live for the first time at Che Grand's annual hip hop show at Don Pedros, in Brooklyn. Yesterday, Guru, one of my favorite emcees and 1/2 of the legendary group GANGSTARR passed away after a long battle with cancer. I felt it only right to do a piece for someone who was monumental in my love for hip hop and jazz.
The different colored lights had the painting looking all sorts of crazed colors. Because the lights were never turned off I still dont know what the actual painting looks like. Nevertheless, it was a dope and unforgettable experience.
