Mr Brainwash is already well known for his work with musicians, having directed David Guetta’s music video ‘Metropolis’ and created the cover for Madonna’s 3rd greatest hits album. His latest creative collaboration is with internationally renowned American rapper, Rick Ross.
Rick Ross, who founded the record label Maybach Music Group, has just released his sixth studio album, ‘Mastermind’. As well as a ‘standard’ cover the album has a ‘deluxe’ cover designed by none other than our favourite maverick French street artist, Mr Brainwash!
So how did Mr Brainwash and Ricky Rozay hook up? The rapper explained, “I’m a fan of art. I might have got a piece or two at Art Basel. That’s one of the homies. I forgot where we met. I go over to his studio, smoke, let beats play sometimes. He has a huge studio. I let Mr Brainwash get on the mic one night. He was on the mic for three hours, just saying different things. His whole slogan is “Life is Beautiful”, so he was saying some powerful things.” If Mr Brainwash is one of your ‘homies’ don’t miss our great collection of prints...
