Cornbread the Legend, released in conjunction with the typeface Cornbread, depicts the legendary story of Darryl ‘Cornbread’ McCray, the pioneer of modern graffiti. Explore archive newspapers, drawings, photographs, and an interview by Maxitype revealing his groundbreaking impact on the Hip Hop movement. In 1971, the Philadelphia Tribune mistakenly announced Cornbread’s death. To prove them wrong, Darryl McCray pursued a series of epic actions, including spray-painting an elephant at the Philadelphia Zoo and a TWA jet. This triggered a plethora of articles, interviews and quotes, propelling the once-anonymous figure to public fame.
