Live Fast, Draw Yung - Short Documentary

Live Fast, Draw Yung

TriBeca Film Festival Premiere

Consulting Editor: Joe Peeler



Described by the LA Weekly as the “foremost illustrator of rap”, Yung Lenox is a hip hop portraitist specializing in marker drawings of iconic rap albums, from 2 Live Crew’s Nasty As They Wanna Be, to ODB’s Return to the 36 Chambers. He’s sold hundreds of prints, been commissioned for record sleeves, custom apparel and had his artistic debut at the Frieze Art Fair in New York. Unfortunately, Lenox did not attend that show. It was past his bedtime. He was six.
