Marcus Bird Design on Kanye West’s Blog. カニェウェトのブログ^います。   Leave a comment

My cousin is performing artiste Beniton the Menace, and in 2008, I designed an album-style image for him on a whim. I had no idea that this would be the most profilic image of him on the internet. In fact, if you google “Beniton the Menace” n google images, its this picture that comes up first; an image I created while on vacation in New York. He told me that the image had surfaced on Kanye West`s blog because of a new single he and crooner Marvin Priest (Maxi Priest’s son) had made called “Who’s Gonna Smoke”. The song has received good airplay and got Beniton a featured in Fader Magazine online. The link to the image on Kanye’s blog is below. You can download the single for free here:
