Rap Dads

I'm confident many of you will enjoy this SITE.
Rap Dads is an ongoing film photo series and hand written account by yours truly in conjunction with dads who rap, produce, and work in the hip hop industry.
Over the past year I've traveled to the homes of individuals in the hip hop world and photographed them with their children on film, had the children draw pictures of their father with crayons, and asked both the fathers and their children to fill out questionnaires about music, their lives, and fatherhood.
These unedited, raw snapshots and hand written accounts provide an intimate look into the side of rappers, producers, and executives' lives we rarely get to see.
Some rappers leave the stage and head to CVS to buy diapers. Some producers spend their royalties on baby formula. Some managers Facetime with their children before rap shows.
To take a page out of Frank Ocean's lyric book, these individuals have three lives balanced on their heads like steak knives- their life as a father, as an individual, and as an artist.
I intend to continue this project indefinitely. If you or someone you know is a Rap Dad who would like to participate, hit the contact button on this site!
