Real Bars - Franky Nino

Real Bars – Franky Nino

The iconic cover of Public Enemy's 'It Takes a Nation of Millions...' sees Chuck and Flav locked in a jail cell, glaring into the camera, all defiant scowl and righteous pout. Hip Hop had certainly done politics before, but not like this. The message was clear. But after the photo op, Chuck and Flav walked away free men. For them, prison was merely symbolic; for rappers Anonymo, Franky Nino and the GhettoYouths project, prison is not an image - it's a daily reality.
