1. Photo Tribute to Hip-Hop Artists Who Have Passed Away.

    tribute-to-the-kings

    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.

      Amazing post! Also I'd like to add a rest in peace to MC Breed, Mac Dre & Too Poetic (Gravediggaz). These names are too often forgotten when the topic of deceased influential rappers comes up.
