Ricky Powell

Ricky Powell | In episode 12 of Light Culture Podcast, Paper Magazine founder David Hershkovits talks with Ricky Powell, OG Hip Hop photographer, funnyman, and jack of all trades.

Ricky Powell has had a checkered career running the gamut from pot delivery boy to Frozade vendor to access cable celebrity but most of all as one of the coolest street photographers on the planet. As a stand-up comedian/photographer, he leaves audiences in stitches with the comments he makes about Run-DMC, Cindy Crawford, and other greats he shot and befriended. He joins us on Light Culture podcast to talk about selling weed to Method Man, appearing in the Beastie Boy’s “You’ve Got to Fight for Your Right to Party” video, and what it means to be a Lazy Hustler.
