Shoefiti and Hip Hop

TuttiFreshy has some cool shoefiti paintings, and a solid Johnny Cash / Eazy E mashup on his site. He also takes on shoefiti theories:

A shoefiti artist will wait until the middle of the night to fling a pair of tied shoes over a low-hanging utility wire. With any luck, the shoes will wrap themselves over the wire and remain there indefinitely. It becomes a kind of piece of art & a symbol of passage.

It’s a mysterious part of the hip hop movement that I found funny and interesting. I was told that if you see some shoefiti in a neighborhood, you should have some drug dealers in the area too 😉
