The Major Lazer Song “Aerosol Can” featuring Pharrell takes new meaning to a lyric video. Add graffiti and tattoo legend Mike Giant scrawling his stylized text that becomes animated. Now sprinkle Diplo’s beat and Pharrell’s lyrics and what do you have? A very dope video for Major Lazer’s “Aerosol Can.”
This is what your favorite rapper would look like as an 8 bit Nintendo character.
Based out of Lübeck, Germany, illustrator and graphic designer Zhi-Yun Zhang reimagined a number of musical icons as our most beloved cartoon characters with pretty awesome results. Yeezy for instance takes the form of Porky Pig, while the Bawse finds his alter ego in Spongebob’s dimwitted and equally massive homie Patrick. Check out the other combinations in the gallery above, including Pharrell, Drake and many more
On March 9th, 1997, we lost one of the Greatest rappers to ever grace the mic. Brooklyn artist Danielle Mastrion pays respect to the Notrious B.I.G. painting him in in his classic Gucci sun glasses and Coogi sweater. If you are in the Bushwick neighborhood in Brooklyn go to Troutman and St. Nicholas ave to see this in person Baby Baby!!
