Street artist turned entrepreneur, Kaws is kind of a legend who’s now getting his due as a pop art kingpin. He’s gone from pasting up his memorable characters illegally on street corners to showing in galleries, doing album covers for Kanye West and Clipse, designing blinged out chains for Pharrell and making vinyl toys and clothing through his company OriginalFake. You can buy some of his products at his site Kawsone.

The Clipse, comprised of two brother from Virginia Beach, Pusha T and Malice, are about the best rap duo out there right now (as is evident by the line up in our mast head “Addicted to the Fly” which is from one of their mixtapes). They have a new album coming out late summer and have been leaking a few tracks from it with cover art by Kaws. Their past two propper albums are packed with sick coke rhymes backed by beats from Pharrell and the Neptunes. They’ve also stayed relevant between releases by dropping about as many mixtapes on us as Lil’ Wayne with their foursome, the Ru-Up Gang. Can’t wait for the new shit to drop.
