The OG is Back
The OG is Back is a Black Letter catalog that explains how this centuries-old typeface is coming back to the modern world of design. Using hip-hop references, The OG is Back, depicts Black Letter’s comeback. It was especially popular in hip-hop culture during the early 2000s, as it was widely used on album covers and in their fashion as well. Through Hip-Hop’s incorporation of Black Letter, it changed the mood of it from biblical and formal to tough and street-wise.
