Professor Green

I was walking past the Shepherds Bush Empire today and saw a bunch of stencils on the walls. They all said Professor Green in a green spray paint and they are literally everywhere around the Empire - on walls, on pissoars, on doors, electrical boxes, litter boxes..... Naturally I got curious who this brave She.Bu. kid was so I googled.
Turns out there's this rapper called Professor Green playing at the Empire tonight.
So this was not some cool new stencil artist, this was a PR team!
I guess it was inevitable; for companies to start using street art this way to get a product out. I think it's shameful and I'm quite saddened by the whole thing...
