The subway station is going crazy. The call box wants to bring about world peace like the Dalai Lama, the construction area light is heartbroken and the newspaper vending machines belt out a hit song from the eighties. A street filled with rhythm and passion.

Refusing to be tamed, rejecting the “fancy job” in the art world and taking on the big advertising agencies? MissMe shows us how to do it. Her street art also casually sweeps away female stereotypes and shows us what beauty can, even must be. “Who run the world? Girls!”

“I got love for the underdog.” Boots Riley is not a capitalist for he knows the seamy side of the land of opportunity. Class struggle is what drives his art, not selling out, fame or fortune. Hip-hop is the boombox for his political vision.
