Will Power Pays Homage to Hip-Hop Culture in Chilltown

For various weeks beginning in late Could, Will Electrical power brought his large adore of hip-hop and splendid capabilities to the 150-foot tunnel along New York and Ravine Avenues in Jersey Heights. Doing work in collaboration with observed hip-hop documentarians Ernie Paniccioli, T. Eric Monroe and David Corio, Will painted a momentous mural spending homage to 45 hip-hop icons and to the photographers who so brilliantly documented them.

Captured above at the entry to the Hip-Hop Tunnel is the late famous Tupac Shakur — centered on a image by T. Eric Monroe. Many shut-ups from inside of the tunnel observe:
