We're getting ready for the opening of Lisa Leone's exhibition 'Then ' at the HVW8 on May 11th, and I asked Lisa for a few photos to post - along with a couple words about each.... classics!
Nas – 1993.
During the recording session of Nas’s first album “Illmatic”…considered by critics as one of the quintessential hip hop recordings and one of the greatest hip hop albums of all time. VH1 licensed the photos for Nas: Behind the Music....they were told there were no photographers during the session, but they were wrong!
Slick Rick – 1992.
At Riker’s Island. I went with Russell Simmons…as we were leaving Russell gave Rick $40 for the commissary, a second later Russell swiped back a twenty saying, “you don’t need that much”.
Pharcyde – 1995.
On the set of Spike Jonze's classic video “Drop”.
