Photos For Rap Group

On several occasions between 1995 and 1999, I took photos of a north Minneapolis rap group called North Side Hustlaz Clic.  Recently they called to ask me if I would take photos of them again.  I said, “Hmmm, I dunno, I’m an architectural photographer now.”  My specialty has been architectural photography for many years now but I often take photos of people within an environment, whether it be interior or exterior.  After some hesitation, I said sure, why not.  Sometimes it’s good to shake things up a bit and do something different.  It forces you to brush up on some skills.

Northside Hustlaz Clic have not worked together as a group in 13 years, but are back together again to record an CD, “Back On Tha Scene,” and new photos were needed.  The members of the group are Trey Eighty, Endo, Stray Ray and Philthy Money.  The newest member, Philthy Money, who is the son of Trey Eighty, had just been born when I took photos of them years ago.

Check out Versitale Records website where you’ll find more information and videos, or North Side Hustlaz Clic Facebook page.

Says Trey Eighty, “Versitale Records has a lot in store for Minnesota in the next decade.”

Here are some of the photos from our session.
