    (GALLERY & VIDEO).

    How's this for the realness; remember when Q-Tip rapped, "Street poetry is my everyday"? Well you can thank street artist Jay Shells for taking that sentiment to its logical conclusion with his series of so-simple yet so-fresh street signs featuring rap lyrics at their specific geographic locations. More than 30 in all, the rap quotables by Jay-Z, Nice & Smooth, Mos Def and more were captured by ANIMAL in all their lyrical glory. This is right up our alley.
