Will Power Pays Homage to Hip-Hop Culture in Chilltown

Will Power Pays Homage to Hip-Hop Culture in Chilltown

For many weeks commencing in late May perhaps, Will Ability introduced his significant appreciate of hip-hop and splendid abilities to the 150-foot tunnel together New York and Ravine Avenues in Jersey Heights. Performing in collaboration with pointed out hip-hop documentarians Ernie Paniccioli, T. Eric Monroe and David Corio, Will painted a momentous mural paying out 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 legendary Tupac Shakur — based mostly on a image by T. Eric Monroe. Several shut-ups from within the tunnel stick to:

Sponsored by the Jersey Metropolis Mural Arts Plan, the massively impressive mural — viewed by thousands every day as they travel in and out of Jersey Heights — is a magnificent tribute to hip-hop tradition.
