New Jersey graffiti artist Jay Mack was definitely not expecting the phone call he received from MMG boss Rick Ross, and it even took a minute for him to accept the fact that it was really Rozay on the other end of the line.
But when Ross officially offered the upstart street artist an opportunity to fly down to his Atlanta Georgia mansion to do some work, Mack jumped at the chance and hasn't looked back.
After his custom Jordan mural work was discovered by Ross through the common but always lifesaving Google search, it was a mutual friend who happened to be one of Ross's tattoo artists that actually made the link.
"When he got on the phone I couldn't deny the voice," Mack told REVOLT.
Ross invited him right down to the house and immediately had Mack go to work on the Black Bottle Boys bowling alley.
Then it was on to the gym for his Michael Jordan/LeBron James-themed wall, which almost looks 3D. Mack is not done with the work at the Ross estate, but in the meantime as Renzel's new LP Black Market is set to hit shelves today (December 4), Mack has been doing pop-up art all around the country to promote the project, take a look:
If you want to check out some of Jay Mack' artwork live in person then head to the "Big Walls Big Dreams" showcase at the creative madness that is Art Basel in Miami, Florida this weekend. Jay also will be doing some work at the REVOLT "Blended Cultures" event at the Maps Backlot in Wynwood tomorrow, so if you are in the 305 make sure you swing by and show some love!
