Justin Bua is probably the most well known Urban Artist on the planet. I am sure either you, or someone you know has a Bua poster on his or her wall right now. He grew up in the same streets as many original Hip Hop Icons like Frosty Freeze (RIP) and Ken Swift. And has lived the life of a New York Street Style Dancer and Artist. His paintings sell all over the world, and his client list is a who's who of the Music, Athletic and Political world. For this brother to honor me in such a way has touched me deep, because I never really look at myself as an achiever, but more as a person who is still striving to achieve. After reading his words and looking at the angle of the BBoy in his painting. I felt like "Man! maybe I did accomplish something important worth documenting". Street Cats always feel we have to wake up every morning with something to prove. And the acknowledgment of a person I truly respect as an artist and a human being can say something that will take you back, and make you chill and give thanks for the opportunities I have had in my life to Dance.
The Legends of Hip Hop is a must have Book! If you love the culture and want something to remind you of how important Hip Hop is to our lives, BUY THE BOOK! and keep it where others can open the pages that Bua has Blessed with his skills, while reminiscing of all the great things Hip Hop has done for people. Not just music, but the Icons themselves. Complex human beings that can't be figured out by the ordinary man. But only by us, who Love Hip Hop Culture.
