Love Art, Love Hip Hop?! Non Stop Bhangra co-founder Jimmy Love launches a side project featuring FREE hip hop poster designs for download accompanied by free hip hop dance party with Bay Area’s own DJ Dave Paul who has been an integral part of hip-hop and DJ culture for the last 20 years.
ABOUT HEADS OF HIP HOP
After 15 years of producing music events and DJ’ing in the San Francisco Bay Area, Jimmy Love finally got a break from the action to return to one of his main passions, art. Heads of Hip Hop started off as a quick drawing exercise during the summer of Covid, where he picked up his iPad and took on daily drawings to get back into the creative flow. The original goal was to illustrate hip hop artists in under two hours to help get the juices flowing, however once they were posted to social media, there was a major influx of people requesting prints. Over the course of a few months, tons of artists requests, and plenty of coffee and cocktails, there were finally enough images to see this project come to light. This project will grow weekly moving forward as a living, breathing art exhibit. One love!
HOW THE SITE WILL WORK:
1 – Download Free Prints
2 – Send to any printer
3 – Hang on your walls
ABOUT DAVE PAUL | DJ Set 3 – 8pm (PST)
For over 20 years, DJ Dave Paul has been an integral part of hip-hop and DJ culture. During the late 80s and early 90s his weekly radio show “Beat Box Fridays” on college radio station KCSF in San Francisco was instrumental in breaking many hip-hop records in the Bay Area market. In the early 90s, he launched the now legendary publication, The Bomb Hip-Hop Magazine, and in 1995, Paul transformed the magazine into a record label. The company was named “one of the fifteen independent labels that matter,” according to Rolling Stone, and the label’s Return of the DJ series was ranked by Spin Magazine as #25 in their “The 90 Greatest Albums of the 90’s” (Sept. 1999 issue), receiving a higher rating than Gold & Platinum albums by Lauryn Hill, Pearl Jam, Metallica, Green Day, and Fatboy Slim. Dave Paul has appeared on the front cover of Billboard magazine and is featured in the motion picture Scratch. Mr. Paul has DJ’ed throughout the US, toured Europe, released over 100 projects on his record label, and currently produces theme parties
