JUSTIN BUA CAPTURES THE ESSENCE OF HIP HOP
I would describe him in the most literal sense as an "Hip Hop Artist." Justin Bua brings us an excellent critique of some of Hip Hop's greatest. His discourse on Hip Hop's Legends instantly took me back to that place we called the Student Union at Metropolitan State College talking Hip Hop over slices of pizza and soda.
Justin incorporates a Hip Hop narrative while reflecting on the affects of Hip Hop on his life. His colorful portraits of Hip Hop's great artists appeal to that "inner Hip Hop" in all of us who grew up during that era.
The age of MTV and Atari was a time where it wasn't uncommon to see a teen, walking with his friends down the street, with a boom box half the size of his body, searching for the right opportunity to display those new moves he worked tirelessly ;on on his living room floor.
Justin discusses his appreciation to those he ascribes Hip Hop innovation to, with great respect and enthusiasm.
