2Pac x Jean-Michel Basquiat Prod by !llmind
A study between two like-minded legends and the similarities in both their crafts and live alike. People die, but legends live forever.
Contemporary art phenom Naturel mashes up Tupac and Basquiat in celebration of Tupac's birth, death and musical resurrection.
I thought the whole Tupac and Basquait idea would be a cool little mash up, but then I started to realize that these two had very similar lives and careers. I realized that both Tupac and Basquait were very crude in their craft. Tupac wasn’t necessarily the best lyricist, he didn’t construct the best songs, but they were straight to the point. The crudeness, honesty and the instinct within those songs struck a chord. It was the same thing with Basquait, he wasn’t the most painterly of painters, but he was so instinctual that it embodied what it was to be an artist. Straight from the gut, straight from the heart." - Naturel
