Most Of My Heroes Don't Appear On No Stamp Pt. 2- Golden Era Edition
It appears that no matter how hard the internet tries to put the work on your parcel service, the USPS is figuring out ways to keep itself afloat. Through an official release just a few weeks ago, the USPS put out the word of its ushering in a new series of stamps that will promise to celebrate the legacies of our tradition’s greatest innovators; the roots of our audible pastime, capturing the like of Jimi Hendrix, James Brown, John Lennon and countless others in the form of a posh embellishment of your run-of-the-mill postage mark.
Now the good folks at Madina UK are gifting us an homage to the Golden Era of hip-hop that captures every namesake performer and producer that we cherished in those early years with a stamp branded with the faces of our great luminaries and lettered to validate that these are the vital components to our traditions periodic table. Including everyone from Rakim to Biggie and Kool Keith to Common, it's a true and comprehensive nod to our founding fathers in dope print. Those who hoped for those illustrious faces to make an official USPS sanctioned stamp, can come correct and peep the ill design above then head over to Madina to cop in the form of postcards, tees or full fledged blown-up posters.
