It’s pretty safe to say that Pharrell is a big reason why so many hip-hop heads today are familiar with the art of Kaws. The NJ native got his start in the 90s when he was just spraying graffiti all over NYC. His humble beginnings as a graf kid is pretty interesting to hear in detail. While his personality is noticeably low key, his work speaks volumes. People like Skateboard and Nigo from Bape have spent racks on racks on his pieces. On the second episode of P’s new web series, he spoke to Kaws and artist David Salle about their early days. (thanks to Eskay)
