I really don’t spend enough time keeping up with the colorful world of US street culture. When it comes down to it, I’m nowhere near as hip as ex-US president Bill Clinton. According to Justin Bua in this article for Vancouver student radio station CJSF, the erstwhile US pres has a bunch of Bua’s seminal artwork gracing various walls in his house.
For those of you that don’t know, Bua is a street artist who creates cartoonish portraits documenting the various cultural icons to be found in the lower stratas of the US social fabric, such as ‘The DJ’, featured here.
Check out this interview with the man himself interspersed with fitting old school hip hop classics from the likes of Afrika Bambaataa and Eric B and Rakim.
