The love between luxury and rap is for real (for realz?). Not just in looks, but in lingo, too. This is been noted, and ingeniously designed, by Luke Skinner, a graphic designer, illustrator, and hip-hop and lettering enthusiast. In a series and site called ‘Luxury Rap’, he posts what he describes as “a hand-lettered A-Z of fashion references in hip hop.
His Rules: Everything must be hand-drawn in black ink on paper and have minimal digital manipulation.
His Disclaimer: “I’m going to post as regularly as I can, as many letters as I can (I’m completely open to suggestions for Q…I do have a contingency for letters I come up short on) and as many varied artists and songs as I can. The quality and importance of the brands and songs I use are subjective and potentially controversial, but I can live with that.”
