First time I heard this chick’s voice, is when I first heard Chance The Rapper’s “Hey Ma” last year. Her vocals on that record made me want to find out more. It wasn’t until recently I found out it was Lili K. The Jazz/Hip Hop inspired singer drops her most recent video, “Highlight of the Moon”. I really dig her.

A random web user recently came across a pretty impressive Styrofoam cup doodle. The cup was left behind at a car dealership in Norman, Oklahoma and is covered in intricate doodles, inside and out. Patterns, text, characters, and cartoon character from The Simpsons, Smurfs, Dilbert, and Beetle Bailey appear on the cup and the inner rim reads: “If you look deep within a piece of art you will find a piece of its creator.”

However, Basquiat’s popularity is enjoying a special renewal over the course of 2013. The hugely popular Basquiat retrospective at Manhattan’s Gagosian Gallery will be followed by another at Gagosian’s Hong Kong gallery later this month.

The second in the series speaks with fellow contemporary artist Toxic on Basquiat’s transformation into an art-star. The third installment speaks with Macklemore, one of many contemporary rappers to express inspiration from the late artist. (more…)
