Lil Yachty, Pajel, Skepta and more – This is what you missed last week
British Grime legend Skepta just debuted a painting titled “Mama goes to market” at Sotheby’s, one of the world’s most prestigious auction houses.
The painting shows a market scene in Nigeria, which Skepta describes as “a brought-together memory.”
The rap-artist created his first and only painting during the lockdown in 2020. The painting will be on show to the public from September 7 – 13 at Sotheby’s New Bond Street. After that, it will go on auction.
In the course of his announcement, Skepta talked to Financial Times about the reason he started painting:
“I did it because I was just super-frustrated in my house. I guess I was just so used to expressing myself all the time, every two days, out doing a show somewhere new,” adding that he wasn’t “gonna write a song about lockdown and staying in.”
Pajel and the new
The young German Hiphop artist Pajel showed the new adidas DFB jerseys in his a video on his Instagram.
In the video, Pajel himself is wearing a jersey with the DFB-look. Since the jerseys are yet to be officially revealed, the video by Pajel seems to be a sneak-peek.
The players Müller and Gnabry are part of the video as well.
