Fine Art Friday: CYOP E KAF

The artist duo and Italian crew of CYOP E KAF have been populating the streets of Italy and the rest of the world for quite some time. From books, to murals, to street art and print editions, the duo continue to produce simple yet creative work in many mediums. Some of the first work I saw by them continues to be my favorite so far, but check out the website below and study the range of subject matter and material that they work in for a good sample of their skills. More images after the jump.

Somehow still maintaining critical acclaim while rarely getting TV or radio airplay, Joey Bada$$ (of Pro Era) recently dropped the visuals for the single for "My Yout" from the "Summer Knights" EP and featuring Maverick Sabre. Filmed in St. Lucia, "My Yout" finds Joey bouncing around the island and walking the streets with local folks and rapping about life and growing up.

Listen: Curtessy x The Militia - "Expectations"

South Central emcee Curtessy and Johannesburg-based beatsmith The Militia recently teamed up to drop the collaborative album entitled "Expectations" via The DJ Booth. Showing many areas of growth since the last album, Curtessy also linked some guest spots from notable emcee's like Khrysis, MidaZ The Beast, Pro Logik, Rome Clientel and Wally Left with all production duties handled entirely by The Militia. Glad to see Cali emcee's diversifying their sound and concentrating on making good music instead of relying on club tracks to show their skills. Check it out and support some slept-on Left Coast talent.
