Two vets, in artist Shepard Fairey and photographer Mike Miller, came together recently for a collaborative Eazy-E tribute print, dubbed “Compton’s Most Wanted.”
Taking one of Miller’s iconic shots of Eazy-E, Fairey put his familiar art flair to it. It features the legendary rapper from the shoulders up with an American flag in the background.
In this interview clip, Fairey and Miller discuss the collaboration, how it came about, and why Eazy is such an important figure in music and history.
The Mike Miller x Shepard Fairey “Compton’s Most Wanted” print is available now, over at ObeyGiant.com.
