Picture Perfect with Alexander Richter

Friday, June 13th, 2014

Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

It’s time for another edition of Picture Perfect, and this week, we linked up with professional hip-hop photographer and amazing all-around artistic talent Alexander Richter to break down some of the most iconic photos from his many years of capturing images of our favorite rap stars. Without knowing it, you’ve probably seen Alexander’s work all over your Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook feeds, and definitely on blogs like NahRight. And that’s not by accident. Dude makes phenomenal pictures, straight up, and they’ve been used for everything from album covers to press junkets to feature stories in magazines in the U.S. and overseas, and in turn have spread like wildfire to make a major impact online as well (whether he’s been properly credited or not). Read below as Alexander Richter takes us behind the lens to discuss these ten timeless photos he’s made of rap stars—from 50 Cent to Mac Miller to The Clipse—in detail. As you will find out, there’s way more to it than just point and click. Respect the shooter.

Picture Perfect with Retch

Monday, June 2nd, 2014

Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

When it was time to choose someone to set off our new feature series Picture Perfect, where we get the stories behind our favorite artists’ Instagram flicks, it was a no-brainer to holler at Retch. Not only is Retch one of the dopest young rappers out right now (peep his latest project Polo Sporting Goods produced entirely by Thelonious Martin for proof), but his IG feed is off the chain. Whether he’s posting pics of him and his homies smoking excessive amounts of weed and/or hanging with the waviest of females, posing with your favorite hip-hop personalities (and the occasional movie star), or piecing together hilarious videos of nighttime moves through NYC, Retchy P’s been consistently killing it on the ‘Gram. So we connected with him earlier this week to get some insight into a dozen of his most compelling pics, and we also asked him to choose his favorite video clip from his recent IG footage. Here’s our first ever Picture Perfect with Retch, and yes, it’s lit!
