“Either go to jail or we dyin’, I’m seeing yellow tape I’m hearing sirens. I done been through it all.”- Hallucinations Remix– Gilla
This painting has been featured in all of my events since my second show in June and is always a crowd favourite. It’s probably my favourite painting to display my style & skills. This manifestation of the talented Rapper Gilla was the first artist out of the Repsup/OVO team I was asked to paint paving the way for my OVO collection that I’m still painting to date.
Being from the east end of Toronto this was an honour because he’s been considered the “Don” for years and if you come from the streets you can’t help but respect him. He’s responsible for building many careers and opportunities for artists we see flourishing in mainstream media now & is surprisingly humble about that achievement.
The 3D RepsUp Chain reps the set but nothing reps it more than his music. You can download his latest single here.
