Behold, the Grand Taxonomy of Rap Names!

The Pop Chart Lab blog offers a breakdown of rapper name categories ranging from “similarity to cartoon character” to “drug trade” to “alphanumeric.” And then some. And it’s awesome.

Brooklyn-based lithographic press people Precise Continental Corp. print the 18” by 24” posters on 80-lbs. archival recycled stock.

The poster analyzes and categorizes almost 300 hip hop monikers.

Each scroll comes hand-signed by the artists, stamped with the blog’s official seal and numbered according to the master edition.
