Freehand Profit bridges the gap between Art & Hip Hop
In Los Angeles, California you mayÂ have seen the work of Freehand Profit, whoÂ describes his work as being his own lane,Â whereÂ art & hip hop meet. Inspired by Noah Scalin'sÂ "Skull-A-Day,Â he ventured away from painting and translated his artÂ into the "Mask 365" project in 2010. Having trouble with paint on the gas masks, Â Freehand ProfitÂ searched for a new material and found an old Gucci purse that a friend's mother was throwing out. That was the true birth of the developed style we see today.Â
Profit, who calls himself "TheÂ Hip Hop Nerd" let us know why he gave himself the nickname. The artistÂ explainedÂ how it was the name of one of his blogs where he could just be nerdy about hip hop. Also that a "nerd"Â is never afraid to be a fanÂ of anything. If you're a fan of his work, be sure to check out his bookÂ "Army of the Undeadstock" with San Diego writer B(e)selah.
