Next week, Netflix will air their new documentary titled LA Originals featuring Chicano artists Mister Cartoon and Estevan Oriol regarding their conquest in the hip-hop world.
According to Netflix, LA Originals will serve as “an exploration of the culture and landmarks of the Chicano and street art movement that cemented Mister Cartoon and Estevan Oriol’s status as behind-the-scenes hip-hop legends.”
Both Cartoon and Oriol have cultivated prosperous careers with the former blooming into a famed tattoo artist, inking the likes of Kobe Bryant, 50 Cent, and Method Man. He also created the logos for both Cypress Hill and Eminem’s Shady Records label.
As for Oriol — who serves as the documentary’s director — he’s proven to be an esteemed photographer capturing the likes of Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, and Cypress Hill. “If you ain’t get tatted by Cartoon, you ain’t got no tats,” says Snoop in the two-minute trailer. “If you ain’t get shot by Estevan, you got a weak photographer.”
Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Pharrell, Blink-182, Cypress Hill along with actors George Lopez, Danny Trejo, Wilmer Valderrama and actress Michelle Rodriguez will appear in the doc.
