The Vapors: Street Script Debut Gallery on July 17 at Chinatown Experiment Vancouver [News]

Vancouver, BC – Take a walk down East Vancouver’s grimy alley ways and lively streets and you’ll notice a plethora of event posters, graffiti and often times some hand painted, classic hip-hop lyrics pasted up amongst the chaos. The beautifully written lyrics by Vancouver’s own Street Script is more than some shameless, self promotion graffiti lining the streets for ego boosts. It’s a movement. Combining art and hip-hop, 22 year old artist Mega makes her moves with hand painted words that pay homage to legendary lyricists.

Street Script will be holding a gallery debut titled “The Vapors” on July 17 and we are very proud to be co-presenting. DJ ICY TOUCH will be spinning fresh cuts for the evening and collaborative works by The Dark, Doug Weir and JB can also be found. This show is one night only and open to the public at Chinatown Experiment (434 Columbia St.) from 7PM – Midnight. Don’t miss this Vancity.

‘The Vapors‘ is a song by Biz Markie released in 1988. It is the ironic life story of crew members TJ Swan, Big Daddy Kane, and Cutmaster Cool V. It is said in the song that their early lives were miserable and hard, and they were unwanted, hated and disrespected. Now that they have become infamous musicians, people who disrespected them in their childhood are “getting the Vapors”. Their treatment to them changed, and know they want to be friends, borrow money, offer jobs, etc.

For me the Vapors represents a story of creating something from nothing, of changing form. From changing air to liquid. Changing thoughts caught in the abyss into ideas and action. Street Script was a vision in the making for well over a year. These vapors are the product of the changing air, thoughts and ideas. All pieces included in this gallery are brand new – hand made from scratch.


Street Script is the intersection of Art & Hip-Hop. Through lyric design and illustration, we big up a movement that transcends cultures and generations. The juxtaposition of hand written type brings out the beauty in the lyrics that have been considered to be raw or raunchy. By showing respect in our lines, we pay respect to theirs.
