"GANGSTA WAGNER" was created as part of the 2010 Ring Festival LA. It was commissioned by Grand Performances and LA Opera. Produced by GG, performed by daKAH Hip Hop Orchestra.
In WWII, Wagner's music was Hitler's gangsta rap. The album concept was to embrace the sinister sounds of Richard Wagner's Ring Cycle, and combine it with the hard sound of early 1990s rap music.
The imagery (using photographs, stencils, spray paint and finally photoshop) was used on advertising and for the CD packaging.
