7-Year-Old Recreates Classic Hip-Hop Artwork [PHOTOS]
Allow us to introduce you to a kid who proves there’s no age limit to who can be considered an artist. His name is Lenox, but you can call him Yung Lenox, the prepubescent Hip-Hop maestro.
We first learned of his talents via a feature by the good folks at Complex. At just seven years old, the child has created a buzz around his colorful caricatures of some of the game’s biggest rappers. And he’s not just drawing new rappers he’s heard on the radio. Lenox digs into the proverbial crates to recreate classic imagery that dates back to long before he was born.Needless to say that the culture lives in the young Padawon.
In recent months, Lenox’s talent has been spotlighted on a list of publications like The Source and Frank 151. He’s also done collaborations with t-shirt brand Coke Magic and received kudos from the likes of Raekwon and Action Bronson. So, if you’ve been keeping up, at the tender age of seven, he’s already created a business for himself.
The best way to keep up with Yung Lenox’s work (or find out how you can own one of his limited-edition screenprints) is to follow is Instagram page. But you can find a gallery of our favorites in the gallery after the jump.
