In West Philadelphia (no, really!), King Saladeen (born Raheem Saladeen Johnson) put his heart into basketball... and sometimes, worked on collages. When he sold a piece for $200 at a Philly flea market, it was the first time he considered that art could be his life. So he got to work. Soon, he hit his next big milestone of $1,500 for a piece, which eventually led to a paycheck of $30,000 from Nike.
