No. 2 of 2 in my New York series.
The world famous rapper KRS-One started his career in hip-hop as a graffiti artist and his music, especially Out for Fame and Sound of da Police, has frequently been used as background music in graffiti videos. The lyrics for Sound of da Police begins with this: "Woop-woop! That's the sound of da police! Woop-woop! That's the sound of the beast!" These words inspired the scene and title of this painting. This painting is a tribute to KRS-One, what he stands for and what he has done for the graffiti culture.
