Defining the Visual Style of Southern Hip-Hop (Documentary)

As teased last week, here’s Noisey’s full mini-documentary on legendary design house Pen And Pixel, the creative team behind some of the most memorable album covers of all time. Co-founder Shawn Brauch speaks on the very first design the company ever produced for a rapper, the creation of Juvenile’s 400 Degreez cover and the coining of the term “bling bling” during the creation of B.G.’s Chopper City In The Ghetto artwork, which is notable because Lil Wayne swears he invented that phrase. Brauch also details how 9/11 and the advent of illegal downloading eventually let to the demise of the business. Fascinating stuff.
