The Rockaways III

On my continuing photo journey through The Rockaways (Queens, NY) I hooked up with my old friend and rap artist I.G.Off in Far Rockaway. We had worked together when German filmaker Harald Rumpf shot HIP HOP: A Tale From the Hood, a film about I.G. and his then rap partner Hazardous. This was 10 years ago. Meanwhile I.G. was run over by a drunk driver in 2007 and is paralyzed from the neck down. That has not slowed down his ambitions, he is rapping and recording and has tons of plans for the future. I'll keep you posted, an album is due soon. Meanwhile I.G. took me to his hangouts in Far Rockaway and introduced me to the neighborhood. We plan another visit this weekend ...
