One of two things can happen once you proclaim yourself as a phenomenal talent: you can get a lot of flack or a lot of work. For Fahamu Pecou, he was lucky enough to reap from the latter. Taking note from none-other-than Kanye West, he decided one day to begin a self-promotion campaign headed by the slogan, "Fahamu Pecou is the shit."

Considering that he is, in fact, a gifted fine artist, Fahamu Pecou's risky crusade paid off. Focusing on hip hop culture, he says, "Soon I began receiving requests for posters, stickers and shirts from New York to Chicago to LA." Kudos to you, Pecou.
