EL CRESPO aka ESA, Aretha Franklin

SKU: SA_af_nh
  • El Crespo aka Esa, El Prez, El Presidente, Funkyprez, DJ Funkprez or Captain Futuro is one of the fathers of the Italian hip hop and rap world. During his adolescence he frequented hip hop circles as a breaker. In the 90s he began his artistic career as a writer, a street experience that grew parallel to the world of rap, of which he became one of the most representative characters, both as a soloist and in groups and collectives plus collaborations with different artists such as Big Fish, Sottotono, Kelly Joyce and Snap! (you can find the complete biography and discography on Wikipedia).

    If in the musical scene he is acclaimed as El Presidente, on the street and in the artistic environment he is signed El Crespo, a tag that originates already in the 90s and to which the over 15k followers of social street art are closely linked.

    The combination of music and urban art merges in the works in the studio. Portraits made with oil pastels of icons from the rap world, hip hop but also jazz, soul and reggae that become real tributes.
