If rap’s your game, no doubt you would have seen some of the many iconic shots taken by veteran LA-based photographer Michael Miller over the years. Known particularly for his images of rap legends from the late 80s and onwards, Miller has an archive collection to die for. As the other half of the collaboration, a man heavily influenced by NWA, Shepard Fairey counts Eazy-E as one of his rap heroes. Naturally the pair chose this image as a way of paying homage to one of the OGs of West Coast hip-hop in the form of a limited edition print.
In this video interview, the pair explain the dynamics of the collaboration and reminisce on the golden days of Eazy-E. With only 750 editions being produced, the ‘Compton’s Most Wanted’ print can be found at Obey’s online store for the amazingly affordable price of $70.
