The SHAOLIN JAZZ – Album Cover Design Contest

This past April, Gerald Watson and DJ 2-Tones teamed up to mash the raps of the Wu-Tang against the rhythms of old school jazz in The Shaolin Jazz "37th Chamber" Mixtape. Due to the positive response from Wu-Tangers and music enthusiasts, Watson and Tones wanted to further engage fans in a unique and creative way that would allow them to interact with the project graphically, so they developed The SHAOLIN JAZZ – Album Cover Design Contest. The winning designer will receive footwear from the Vans OTW Collection and apparel from Staple Design. Get all of the details for the contest after the jump!
