The Bronx Elects A Hip Hop President

04.29.09 Bucky Turco


Unlike Peter Valllone Jr., the city councilman who blindly hates all aerosol related forms of art, newly elected Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. embraces it. Here he is holding a spray can, posing in front of a mural with CES, the skilled graffiti writer who painted a mural for him at the famed tattoo studio Tuff City. In addition to dealing with all the problems that come with the territory, his responsibilities will include building the proposed Hip Hop Museum. It should also be noted that rapper Fat Joe totally has his back. |12oz.|
