Rap Quote Location Signage by Jay Shells

When Jay Shells heard various rappers name-checking some local streets in NYC, he decided those exotic city locales needed to be immortalized not just in song but in road signage: finding songs that specifically mention street names and posting an official-looking sign along the exact road with the lyric printed on it (with attribution for proper repurposing etiquette points), so everyone will know who was hustlin’ there.

The 8-Bit Smiths by Butcher Billy

To die with a Player 2 is such a heavenly way to die. You know, it’s possible Morrissey has always been a bit on the glum side because of his lack of prowess in the Carnival Night Zone, as even that level could make a good man turn bad. The Good Butcher’s latest series brings an 8-bit splash to the dreary wordscapes of the Smiths, bringing hope that for once in my life I could beat the boss this time. Lord knows it would be the first time.
