designing logo..need assistance - Macromedia Freehand

hi, my client is a hip hop band. Besides an image of a microphone, does anyone know what other graphical images I can use that represent rap, and the other elements of hip hop? I've excluded a turntable because that's not what they're into Thanks...

    hi,
    my client is a hip hop band. Besides an image of a microphone, does anyone
    know what other graphical images I can use that represent rap, and the other
    elements of hip hop? I've excluded a turntable because that's not what they're
    into

    Thanks

    Hello Bizybee,
    Well for starters, I know that the graphiti style lettering is really popular
    in hip-hop culture, so that's a good standbye. Also, break dancers, and any
    reference to "Scarface". Currency symbols, Cigars, Royal thrones, Jeweled
    walking sticks. Maybe I'm going a little crazy, just trying to brainstorm. If
    not turntables, maybe records, or gold and/or platinum records.

    Cheers,
    David %^)

    Here's one for me. Could you reveal the name of the band? I may have
    heard them.

    In my opinion, with something like this, it would be better to try
    representing the band themselves, rather than using cliched imagery to
    represent hip hop as a whole (which itself would be difficult with hip
    hop culture now more diverse than ever - you have everything from Pen &
    Pixel's garish jewel-encrusted type for No Limit, to the more arty stuff
    like Anticon). You need to listen to their music and know what they're
    about.

    A few of my favourite hip hop logos are Public Enemy's crosshairs, KMD's
    'Sambo', and the Fondle Em Records mics. A good hand-styled graffiti
    logo can be effective, but it *has* to be done by an actual graffiti artist.

    Here's a great book for reference:
