THE ART OF C'BABI BAYOC (OR ‘CREATIVE BLACK ARTIST BATTLING IGNORANCE’ ‘BLESSED AFRICAN YOUTH OF CREATIVETY’)

I stumbled upon this brother's work years ago at the Drawing Board/Def Jam while reading through an issue of Rap Pages or Blaze magazine- one of them joints. Loved his work so we reached out to him to do the album packaging for the 'THE VIOLATORS' [Violator records/Def Jam]. He did a great job on the illustrations for the package. The renderings of Fat Joe w/Big Pun were hilariously on point. And the Busta illustration is a classic representation. Don't think I've seen a better illustration of him than C'Babi's.

FYI: His work was also featured in the Cey Adams and Bill Adler book DEFINITION: The Art and Design of Hip-Hop back in 2008.

More of C'Babi Bayoc's work is below.
