Art Director Finds Poetic Beauty in Rap Tumblr

And the ad industry Tumblrs continue to delight. One anonymous art director has combined some of the worst rap lyrics of all time with artistic photographs to create Rap Poems. Quoting Cam’ron, Chingy, and DMX can be fodder for great unintentional comedy, especially when their lyrics are presented as if belonging to a Robert Frost poem. As a student of the rap game, I was easily seduced into scrolling through page after page (the DMX graphic below is my favorite.) Enough talking, though, check out the site yourself. I’ll leave you with a final haiku:

Rappers tumble down

Lyrics and photographs shine

The Internet wins
