1. The Magnificent Map of Rap Names. (GALLERY)

    map_full_framed

    Got room on any of your walls for a 39″ x 27″ poster featuring 636 different rapper names, all organized via appropriate nomenclature? If not, maybe you do like Tha Alkaholiks and make roomThis is a pretty nicely executed piece of graphic design with a hip-hop twist to it, when you want to grow up and look “mature,” but not too mature. It comes from PopChart Lab, a collective based in Brooklyn (of course) whose mission is — according to its website — “to render all of human experience in chart form.” We were previously aware of PL’s similar-but-different rap chart (“The Grand Taxonomy of Rap Names” but this one steps up the production value with the addition of luxurious gold-metallic ink. Kanye – can ya hear us?

    $36 bucks and one of the 1000 printed posters can be yours. Yours!
