Wk 1- Art Experiene-Landscapes with a corpse.

Music usually tends to influence the youth. Today rap culture has sort of moved from rapping about selling drugs to abusing drugs. Last year unfortunately a young mogul buy the name of Steven Rodriguez better known by A$AP Yams passed away at the age of 26.Yams was the founder of A$AP Mob and is better know for shepherding the career of A$AP Rocky. It’s unclear if his death was due to overdose of prescription drugs but those that followed his life knew he suffered from a drug addiction particularly codeine and xanax. I believe that the youth gets carried away by the “hype” or maybe just idolize these figures too much to the point where they want to be just like them. Drug abuse is nothing to play with. In these pictures I depicted a death due to overdose by Yams drug of choice “lean ” which is a mixture of codeine with usually sprite. Although we tend to idolize these rap figures and want to be like them, act like them etc. I believe there is a line to be drawn when being cool is no longer cool. Unfortunately people due abuse prescription drugs and lives full of potential are lost due to it.
