I’m a huge fan of Public Enemy, Rage Against the Machine and Cypress Hill. I’ve been honored to do projects with Chuck D of Public Enemy and Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine, who I admire as both artists and activists. When Tom Morello reached out to me about Prophets of Rage, a collaboration with members of Rage Against the Machine, Chuck D from Public Enemy and B-Real of Cypress Hill, I was incredibly excited. Not just because of what this would yield musically, but just as excited by Tom Morello’s statement that a band like this could be a much-needed voice in the political conversation leading up to the election and beyond. I couldn’t agree more so I immediately got to work on some visuals that channeled the history of the band with my flavor added and an eye to the future. Chuck D had already created an icon, and I developed more elements from there with this poster as one of the results.
