You need more people
JAY-Z

Can you act alone?
Because if you don’t speak with passion I don’t believe you when you talk.
You can bring your friends but I probably won’t believe them neither.
Please keep in mind that I am doing all those inspiring artworks by myself.
I don’t need more people because you already believe me and my drawings.

We don’t Work with no cowards
LIL ITALY

I can not work with cowards.
I don’t want to work with people afraid to face the consequences of their decisions.
That’s why -most of the time- I work alone.
Beside, I don’t have a religion.
But I believe in karma.
To me, that’s just logic. You have to accept the consequences of what you previously did.
No need to be afraid.
Just do the right thing.

I’m a man with needs that need fulfilling
BRAND NUBIAN

I try to fill my needs everyday.
If you think about it, I don’t have many needs.
All I want is to stay free.
I don’t care about getting rich or getting famous.
After all who knows… Time will tell.

This is my ghetto story
SWIZZ BEATZ

What’s yours?
Those masked characters I drew for this series are part of a whole art saga.
This is the imaginary story of a group of suburban kids who left France for Borneo.
There they are going to build a community based on animal instincts and freedom.
Without any formal education, they use hip-hop quotes as a basis to create their own philosophy.

Spit it for the city
NOTORIOUS BIG

I used to spit it for the city.
Now I spit it for the jungle.
I am currently based in Indonesia where I live near a tropical forest.
I like all the lizards, snakes, monkeys, and other wild animals.
I don’t really like the mosquitoes, but they don’t bother me much.

Ask Beavis I get nuttin Butt-head
BIG L

Ask Beavis.
I like to get nice and round butts.
I like to get slurpy heads.
I like the MTV animation series Beavis and Butt-head.
To be honest, I don’t have a TV. So I can’t watch MTV or any other channel.
I guess I can keep staying focus on getting a lot of the other things I like.
