mjb

Giant put together this brief but fascinating video about Cey Adams, former art director at Def Jam and creator of some of the most iconic hip-hop album covers of all time. Adams has just put together a book with inveterate hip hop technician Bill Adler about the process of making them and their legacy. Wanna know who created Mary J. Blige's signature logo? Yep, this is the dude. Not to be missed. Watch after the jump. (via Nah Right)
