I did this painting a while back called “Back in the Days” where I used album covers from a bunch of old hip hop records I still had from my DJing days. I always wished I would have done a better job of making my painting interact with the album cover artwork, rather than just use it as a backdrop. Anyway, with the recent down time from the Hurricane Sandy blackout, I figured I’d start a few new ones. Here is the first one I did on a single for Tupac’s “I Get Around”. I always loved his flow right from the beginning on this one with the line…”Back to get wreck, all respect to those who break they neck to keep they hoes in check…”.

Stay tuned for a few more album cover pieces to come, but here is the original “Back in the Days” piece…
