To commemorate the pioneers of hip hop featured in VH1's Hip Hop Honors show in 2009, we commissioned, then rising artist, Kehinde Wiley, now widely considered one of the most important American artists of our time, to create portraiture of the honorees. The portraits were later exhibited in the National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC. View press.
