PR: Hieroglyphics Crew Unveils "The Valley of Kings" Art Piece


From Dunn Deal PR:

HIEROGLYPHICS UNVEIL "THE VALLEY OF KINGS" FINE ART PIECE
"Kings" newest art release from Tech & Sway's WAIL imprint

Behind the making of The Valley Of Kings: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=psWt-dNKFYk&feature=related
 
They replaced George Washington and his militia with RZA, GZA, Old Dirty Bastard and a legion of ninjas in 'Victory Or Death', the limited edition fine art piece the Village Voice called "The finest painting of 2010". And today, When Art Imitates Life (WAIL), the trailblazing art label founded by King Tech of the Wake Up Show and MTV's Sway Calloway, unveils 'The Valley Of Kings', a new project conceptualized and directed by all members of the Cali underground collective Hieroglyphics, of which only 300 canvases exist. Each piece is a whopping 40 x 40, signed by all crew members, and comes with an authenticity certificate. Sign up now for information at www.whenartimitateslife.com and you will receive a link to an an exclusive downloadable Hiero megamix from DJ Equal, along with a link to download the never-before-heard Hiero posse cut, "Hiero Reputation".

'The Valley Of Kings' represents another creative leap for Sway & King Tech's WAIL, the burgeoning art imprint committed to giving the hip-hop pioneers the chance to immortalize themselves on canvas as well as wax. Sway & Tech personally handpick every artist in the WAIL series, and act as intermediary between them and WAIL's team of graphic designers as they work together to create a portrait worthy of a legend. The creation of "The Valley Of Kings" from conception to sign-off of the final artist proof took 12 months and involved everything from greenscreening to drawing to Egyptian iconography. WAIL brought the Hiero crew members to the table with famed aerosol artist Eaz One to brainstorm and flesh out the creative core of the piece, which is said to represent the crew's 20-year journey, as well as the "supernatural" union between the members.

Title: One Day in Heaven ft. Skyzoo & Jaiden
Artist: John Regan
Album: Sorry I'm Late
Producer: YZ
Label: Culture VI Records/Fat Beats



Quick story. I want to congratulate Jaiden, who just signed a deal
with Interscope/Geffen. I actually thought I had "discovered" him when
I stumbled across his music. Turns out, I discovered him about as much
as Christopher Columbus discovered America. I used to spend hours on
MySpace just listening to hundreds of artists in the hope of finding
some talented, yet undiscovered, artists. I just love good music. I
had gotten an email from his manager Delaney blasting out his mixtape,
coincidentally at the same time I stumbled across his MySpace.

Well, I was instantly blown away. I became a fan. Asked him about
doing a record, to which he was down. I told him I wanted to interview
him - at the time thinking I was giving him some big break and
newfound exposure.

We sit down to talk, where he begins telling me about recording,
writing and touring with artists such as Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Diddy and
Lauryn Hill. Turns out, this guy's resume is deeper than most
"successful" artists. Go figure!

So, while I didn't exactly "discover" him, I'm proud that I became a
fan before I knew of his extensive experience. I went to watch him
perform a couple of weeks ago in LA at the R&B Live show (where I also
ran into Macy Gray, Chico DeBarge  and a host of other huge names) -
the same night he agreed to a deal with Interscope/Geffen. He won the
highly competitive event, by the way, and had the biggest applause and
best performance, by far.

Huge shouts to Skyzoo, who has dropped two of hip-hop's best recent
projects in the past 12 months - The Salvation and Live from the Tape
Deck with Illmind. He's not only one of the most talented dudes (his
verse on Heaven is amazing) - but one of the coolest, most
down-to-earth artists I've ever had the pleasure of working with.
Please go support his projects. Shouts to everybody over at Duck Down.

Thanks - hope you enjoy the record!
