No one reps New York quite like Meyhem Lauren. And Queens’ own concrete ambassador is everywhere these days, touring the world with Action Bronson while serving up his savory new Fool’s Gold release, Piatto D’Oro. But Mey’s new series Got The Fever TV features another side of this MC and his city, showcasing rare footage and one-on-ones with some of graffiti’s most iconic and notorious personalities. Premiered on Juxtapoz Mag, the late Jeffrey “KORN” Gamblero (from Meyhem’s SMART Crew) kicks off this inaugural episode, and pieces on Jakee, Zexor and more will follow. As the man himself puts it, “Got The Fever TV about to hit y’all in the head… real shit, real interviews, real life graf.” Download Piatto for free and buy the T-shirt here.
