A few weeks ago, we announced the launch of Community Camera, our new weekly photo contest.
As we explained in our launch announcement, each week we’re asking readers to share a photograph that they think best captures the spirit of community within San Francisco or the broader Bay Area.
Today we’re excited to reveal the first winner of Reset San Francisco‘s Community Camera photo contest.
The title goes to Deco Carter, better known to his passengers and social media followers as “Hip-Hop Lyft.”
As Pandodaily made clear in a profile of him a few years ago, “Carter is no average Lyft driver.”
“Carter runs a themed ride, where he plays old school hip hop for his passengers — MC Hammer, Naughty by Nature, Ice Cube — and offers up candy and water bottles.
“For those riding along who seem open to a little fun, Carter has a trunk full of prizes they can win by playing Hip-Hop Lyft trivia. On the way to their destination, Carter quizzes them. ‘What city did Tupac Shakur die in?’ ‘Lil Wayne’s record label?’ ‘Snoop Dogg’s real name?’
“He’s got a robust knowledge of hip hop facts and figures, having rapped and emceed in the 90s. The passengers who get the last question right can choose from sunglasses, bandannas, necklaces, pimp canes, Red Vines, or whatever else Carter has stocked up on for the night’s ride.”
In a recent tweet that accompanied his winning photo, Carter explained that Hip-Hop Lyft trivia is a great way to meet new people and build connections.
Without further ado, here is the winning photo from Carter (a.k.a. Hip-Hop Lyft):
