The Art: @JaylonDraws – Hip Hop Portraits

Hip hop is about more than music, it’s an culture. Art is definitely apart of our culture. I often refer to music as art; one must paint their picture with their lyrics. One day while scrolling through Instagram I found Jaylon Goode. He’s a native of Kansas City, Missouri and a lover of hip hop. His work is unique and his passion is authentic. Check out some of his portraits of Ab-Soul, Erykah Badu, Joey Bada$$ and many more!
