For the latest All Gone composition, Michael Dupouy puts together a unique hip-hop retrospective known as All Gone: The Finest of Street Culture 2017.

Featuring hand-drawn, exclusive artwork from renowned French illustrator Yoann Houlbert, All Gone: The Finest of Street Culture 2017 provides an intensely-visual, vibrant exploration of hip-hop as a cultural force and its star-artists’ rises to fame and fortune. For the cover and art, Dupouy and his team reference the Pen & Pixels style, 90s southern rap covers, New York City’s Golden Age, Kurtis Blow’s impact, the Cash Money movement, NYC artist Luis Gispert and more. “All Gone’s 2017 new cover is an ode to “Bling-culture” and hip hop jewelry. It pays an extended homage to gold chains, gold pendants, and diamonds,” Dupouy shares. “The new All Gone 2017 cover is all about the streets, about getting rich from the hustle, about opulence, about shining!”

You can take a look at the All Gone: The Finest of Street Culture 2017 cover-art above, while the book itself will arrive on Saturday, January 20. To pre-order your own copy and learn more, head on over to Club 75’s website. Last year, CLOT launched an exclusive All Gone capsule.

The wait is over. Here comes the brand new All Gone book, The Finest of Street Culture 2017. ? The new cover is an ode to “Bling-culture” and Hip Hop jewelry. It pays an extended homage to gold chains, gold pendants, and diamonds. The art is a tribute to the Pen & Pixels scene and all the great nineties southern hip hop album covers, to ‪Raekwon‬’s legendary “Only Built 4 Cuban Linx” EP, to ‪Master P‬’s No Limit records imagery, to Eric B and ‪Rakim‬, ‪LL Cool J‬, Scarface and Big Daddy Kane… all the way to Kurtis Blow, Biggie, ‪Jay Z‬ and Birdman. And beyond musicians, I would also say the cover references the great work of NYC-based contemporary artist Luis Gispert. This cover is all about the streets, about getting rich from the hustle, about opulence, about shining! ? I joined forces with super talented French illustrator @yoann.houlbert to create a unique, hand-draw artwork. The result is stunning and extremely realistic; we printed on a silver based paper, to obtain true reflections effects on all chains and diamonds. Trust me, you will quickly understand when you will experience the book in person ! ? PRE-ORDERS start TODAY‬, with a choice of 3 different covers, exclusively @club75official (link in bio). ? Official RELEASE DATE, ‪SATURDAY JANUARY 20TH‬, with BOOK SIGNING at #Club75 in Paris, ‪from 6pm‬. ❤️ This year marks 12 years of making All Gone Book. Once again, this beautiful adventure would not have been possible without you, dear readers and supporters. Thank you so much for the love. I wish you all the best for 2018.  #allgonebook #lamjc
