Not for nothing, music and photography go hand and hand. A lot of photos are inspired by the lyrics to a song and vice versa. There are some lyrics that just jump out and smack your face the first time you hear them. People like Jay Z, Fab, and Pimp C are notorious for dropping songs with solid bars that pop. Two guys by the name of Richard and Andrew found a way to bring the lyrics in those kinds of bars to life. Their project, Flicks and Flows, is currently on Kickstarter and it combines their love of music and photography together in one place.
