I visited Label clothing store in NYC to film Vincent’s (the owner) story but he said he had a better story. Welcome to the wonderful world of BEANS, aka Mr. Ballbeam. Hip-Hop rebel. Wordsmith extraordinaire. Sonic architect. Fashion renegade. Published poet. Culture star. Raised in White Plains, NY and first picked up on in the mid-90’s as part of the mythic Soup / Boom Poetic collective, the word began to spread. Having achieved his widest acclaim as one-third of the legendary NYC progressive rap crew, Anti-Pop Consortium, BEANS continues his grand experiments in music and life with releases on Warp and Thirsty Ear.
