HIP HOP AND ART

Right before the year was up I got a chance to sit with Hip Hop influenced artist by the name of Bernard Beckford. With his love for 90s boom bap rap and revolutionary sounds are very reflective in his art, Bernard has proven to be an exceptional artist and probably stuck in the golden age of Hip Hop but hey can you blame him? Check out some of the art work and support the culture that is Hip Hop​
