The title of this painting is a pun on the adhesive qualities of cling film and rap music. The work is the Bill Hammond’s attempt to come to terms with the genre. He uses imagery drawn from advertising graphics, comics, doodles, and popular culture in general. The artist usually says something of a critical nature about consumer society. Here, vividly communicating the energy of rap music, his commentary seems more light-hearted.
