Deep In The Dark With The Art: Conversations With The Creators Behind The Best Cover Art From the Wu-Tang Clan and Their Killa Beez Affiliates - the new creation from Boston artist Matteo - is over 230 pages of behind-the-scenes stories of some of the best Wu-Tang cover art as told by the artists themselves.

With the Funk Doctor himself Redman on the Intro and skateboarding icon Gino Iannucci with the Outro, each of the 36 chapters (or ‘chambers’) has never-told-before stories from celebrated artists such as Chris Bachalo, Bill Sienkiewicz and Denys Cowan as artists discuss the process behind crafting unforgettable covers such as Bobby Digital, Wu-Massacre and Liquid Swords, among others.

Deep In The Dark… also contains interludes in-between each chamber. National legends such as Masta Ace, Ras Kass and the late Ricky Powell and local heroes such as Termanology, Lauchie MacDonald and Statik Selektah share the impact Wu-Tang had on their lives and careers. 

A coffee-table art book, Deep In The Dark With The Art follows up on the critical acclaim of Matteo’s first book: Machetes Dipped In Rum: The Oral History of Bone Thugs-n-HarmonyDeep In The Dark With The Art is a one-of-a-kind perspective and celebration of Boston and hip-hop’s most influential group. "Crazy flamboyant / for the rap enjoyment”.
