In late 2011, Italian-based GRADONER GRAPHICS presented this stylized series of portraits of fallen hip-hop artists who each left behind a musical legacy that hasn't been forgotten. Titled "Tribute To The Kings," the photos were taken by various photographers but they are all unified with personal stats and retouched for a nostalgic feel. While there are, sadly, many more individuals in the rap game who are no longer with us in the physical form, here are 14 of the more well-known figures who left us too soon.
