NERD ALERT | What’s in a Name?
We put the RAP in InfogRAPhic.
7 square feet + 636 rap monikers = The Magnificent Map of Rap Names.
“Shorty’s and Shawty’s”
“Improper Use of K”
“Guy’s Name Nas”
No, these are not the names of gangs people. They are a few of several intricate historical categories comprising the name origin of pretty much every MC that ever graced us with their presence. It’s one huge game of six degrees of separation for rappers and rap lovers.
The good people at Pop Chart Lab
have taken infographics to a fantastic hip-hop level. And if you have a few hours to kill, you can check out the coolest rap family tree EVER. Oh, that not your thing? Well they also breakdown cocktails, the history of Apple and more. Have fun!
