Hip Hop is not just a genre. It is a culture. It is a way of life. We as hip hop heads are easily offended when it is not represented the right way. Turn on your social media site, and more often than not you will see a so-called rapper we don’t support wearing some funny looking attire. Even worse than that, there could be that odd occasion when one of our established, respected artists is spotted wearing questionable material.
Abstract Art: The new Crack Factory produced single by Brooklyn rapper V.Nova serves as a THANK YOU as he expresses hip hop’s cultural elements from b-boy to fashion, block parties to competitive battles, and how hip hop is truly represented, and not those images that the mainstream media try to push down our throats, and does it in his usual abstract way, bring that ol’school sound and bringing it to 2014. Smif-N-Wessun join him to clarify his statement.
“The intro of the record is about making a transition from the old way of doing art to the new abstract art concept,” Nova says about the new single. “This is also valid in Hip-Hop.”

Abstract Art is available now and is set to appear on the third installment of the upcoming mixtape: Hidden In Plain Sight: The New Commission, which is due soon.
