The World’s Most Dangerous Pixelart

I didn’t quite grow up listening to NWA in their peak, however I do remember their image and being told “they are bad men, don’t listen to them, they are gangsters who hurt people” etc. Along with the Simpsons they were in the “No-No pile”.

It wasn’t until my late teens when I was heavy into Hip Hop, Gangsta Rap and RnB that I discovered them and learnt about their influence to the music in general (and that they didn’t really hurt anyone).

I like their poetry and team work, each one brings a different element to the group.
I like how 2 of their members became cornerstones of the entertainment industry, broke many barriers and are still influencing (and funding) many artists today.
I enjoyed the movie “Straight Outta Compton” their story is a typical tragedy where it ends too soon for one and in turn all. What could have been? What would be now?
All good things come to an end. The good die young.

They sure don’t make them like this anymore, nowadays all rap songs sound the same! they brag about money and ‘bitches’. Their names are ridiculous and their fan bases are internet fed misguided sheep. They are all emulators.

Can’t believe that when I am an old man I will be saying to my grand kids
“YOU CALL THAT RAP!!! BACK IN MY DAY….”

Who was Bruce Lee?

A man, an actor, a stuntman, a martial artist, a teacher, a migrant, a son, father, husband, brother… but if you asked him he would’ve told you “I am a philosopher.”

My admiration of Lee began when I was a teen, I had early memories of him but it wasn’t until I learnt about his son that I got really interested in his life work.

Not only did he develop and invented Mixed Martial Arts (decades before UFC and it’s modern popularity), but he also inspired hundreds of emerging entertainers around the world (and continues to do so).

He was fascinated by American pop culture and began acting at very young age.
His parents were also in the industry and you could say he was destined for stardom, but no one could have guessed what a nova he would turn out to be.

The thing that attracts me the most is his determination, how he came from nothing and became everything.

But do you know who he was?
What is your earliest memory of his imagery?

One of his quotes helps motivates me and fuels my #Pixelmania hobby:
“Simplicity is the key to brilliance.”

Can you name all of the below? (did I miss any? let me know!)
