The Melrose Avenue Mural is all about lust, sex, temptation and redemption. The track and Mural are infused with meaning.
Rain Dance talks about a woman wanting sex with gangsters. She can't stop her desires ... the addiction for sex.
Temptation is all around her- the world that passes her on the street. The Pink Flamingo represents the Jezebel spirit that is always knocking at our door. The temptation that comes to take that light away from us.

The women in my paintings are all symbolic, the left hand side of the mural indicates the former life of the woman sitting down and being crowned into a new life of walking into the light. The woman waiting to be crowned sees the performance that is happening in front of her and she wants no part of it. The Pink Flamingo is the hoe that want sex with the gangsters and want to entice people to follow her ways, but the woman being crowned is trying to live with purpose as she knows she is renewed. It's a battlefield of the spirits. Light and darkness.

Has anyone who purchased all 3 pieces of the collection received a signed limited edition physical print of Snoop Dogg by James Peter Henry?

After multiple emails makersplace put me in touch with a guy that works with these artists teams - John Kozak. Send him an email [email protected] If you're also wondering about the 4 extra editions created on each of the 3 pieces after the drop - the reason given - "There were 4 artist editions of each piece created for Snoop, Julian, James, & the animator for their personal collections." True to form, in hindsight this wasn't the case as a John Kozak has now acquired 6 of these pieces, 12 days ago.

How did you manage to chase it down?

I did, but had to chase it up like crazy. This whole drop had its own unwritten rules.
