    Shawn Brauch Interview: When Pen Met Pixel

    Shawn Brauch Interview: When Pen Met Pixel

    Time to get glossy and flossy with this week's special guest - Shawn Brauch of Pen and Pixel! Shawn is the genius behind many of those diamond-encrusted album covers that "shaped the visual aesthetic of Southern hip-hop’s flashiest era". Shawn talks about meeting Master P, working with No Limit and Cash Money and seeing a 13-year-old Lil' Wayne fill up a note pad with rhymes. Press play to find out why his "more is more" philosophy gave an "underserved, underutilised and underappreciated people" a visual identity they could be proud of.
