Outside the Lines With Rap Genius – Adam Mansbach/J. Period Excerpt #3 - Blake Lethem LyricsFollow
SameOldShawn: The people who really did graffiti, one of them did the cover of your book. Possibly the world's first white rapper...
Adam Mansbach: Blake Lethem, yeah. KEO. TC5. SCOTCH79. Shout out to him. He did the cover, he did the cover of the mixtape. He did the illuminated letters inside the book. And he was a valuable source for me when I was writing the book, as were a lot of other writers, from PART1 to PHASE2 to ZEPHYR to Alan Ket to BOMB5. I mean, I couldn't have written the book without the access that I had to these guys -- not just in the writing process, but over the last twenty years
