Atlanta Rap Map

$ 36.00 USD

Painted by hand with acrylic paint and detail brushes, the Atlanta Rap Map took over three years to complete. Anything that is included on the map has been literally “put on the map” by being mentioned in a hit song (from classic underground staples, to local hits, to worldwide chart toppers) or an influential album. The research itself took over a year, as older artists were uncovered, and hundreds of albums were listened through in their entirety. Artists were selected for portraits based on their contribution to the genre, overall influence, and popularity/reach. The print itself measures 24” x 36”. The map was created to be a gift to the city, and a way of honoring and documenting all the contributors to a living, breathing, vibrant culture. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the poster will be donated to HOPE Atlanta, to help Georgians avoid homelessness and hunger through a comprehensive approach that equips them with the tools for lifelong stability.
