Metal Monday: Ice Block by KEO
Today’s Metal Monday post features this dope box truck piece by KEO of the legendary X-Men Crew. It has a dope style, and a wonderful ice block character to tie it all together.
KEO is much more than a graffiti writer. His real name is Blake Lethem (Don’t worry we ain’t snitchin’ here). He made a name for himself in graffiti as KEO, but also in NYC rap as Lord Scotch. Many say that Lord Scotch was one of the first white rappers to gain popularity. It is also worth mentioning that he created the cover for MF Doom’s “Operation Doomsday.” If you really like KEO’s style you can attend his graffiti master classes.
