The Leader BMBOX by Elena Kazi

Hip-hop queen and ruler of our hearts, Greece based Elena Kazi artist/DJ/toy designer, the creator of the notorious BMBOX IIIpays homage to Eric B. and Rakim! Inspired by the 1988 classic, the ultra influential album “Follow The Leader” It’s a limited edition of 8 (7 technically as one is the artist proof) so make sure you act super fast!! Comes with 3 different 3 mini cassettes! The BMBOX is loud as ever with the iconic GOLD and BLACK that is a reference seen on Eric B and Rakim

“Ladies & Gentlemen, Put Your Hands Together!”

As far as I know, this cover art was only available on the vinyl version of the single, but I HAD to make some adjustments and turn it into a cassette myself because it’s one of my favourite Hip Hop covers! I actually like it even more than the album. I love it for its simplicity and the boldness that is achieved with the all-white background and the dark, almost silhouette-like shapes of Eric B and Rakim. Their stance and placement combined with the letters of the title create a very interesting positive and negative space.
And though one may misapprehend their exaggerated appearance with the luxurious Dapper Dan outfits and the huge gold chains, this image was more like a metaphorical statement, used symbolically to represent the authority this rap duo had because of mastering their craft.
Sadly, later on, many rappers took that route literally by bragging about their riches in their songs, but this was not the case with Rakim’s thought-provoking lyricism – Elena Kazi
