SIGNED Atlanta Rap Map

$ 44.00 USD

This listing is for a SIGNED copy of the Atlanta Rap Map. It is signed by the artist at the top, underneath the printed name. Painted by hand with acrylic paint and detail brushes, the Atlanta Rap Map took over four 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. Since its release, the poster has been acquired by the Library of Congress permanent archive, the American Geographical Society Library, and the permanent collections of University libraries/archives across the country. The map has been shared online by artists including Quavo, Big Gipp, Lil Scrappy, Trillville, Crime Mob, YoungBloodz, and Arrested Development. A substantial portion of the proceeds from the sales of the poster have been donated to HOPE Atlanta, to help Georgians avoid homelessness and hunger through a comprehensive approach that equips them with the tools for lifelong stability.
