From the same shoot as the last post, by photographer Mike Martin of Mash SF, 2001.

A Great Day In the Bay by photographer Mike Martin (MASH SF) 2001 - A few years ago when I worked at AKQA, I art directed an ad campaign with photographer Mike Martin. When he found out I was a hip-hop fan, he gave me a couple of prints of a shoot he did with some of the greatest rappers in the Bay Area. I finally got quality scans of the two prints. Thank you, Mike! This was published in The Source with an article written by Eric Arnold.
