I don’t listen to hip-hop as much as I used to anymore, but the influence of Dead Prez on hip-hop despite their largely remained-underground status is of no question.

After just having learned some technical techniques to manipulating imagery, the concept came to me while riding a bike one day and looked pretty similar in my mind initially to what is seen here.

Homage to one of their most popular songs, “Be Healthy” combines into slightly whimsical visual elements not uncommon to the feelings counter to the strength of message they stand for. Irony of sorts for anyone beknown to their highly charged lyrical themes.
