Brilliant Rap Lyric Posters

The lyrical genius of rap requires reflection. Tracks have to be consulted again and again, album sleeve in hand, before the full brilliance of the artist's work sinks in. Unless you're listening to Soulja Boy, in which case it's best to just hit next.

French illustrator Zaven Najjar spent 100 days of 2013 obsessing over rap lyrics, creating an amazing series of 100 illustrations for a series titled Rapposters. Below are just a handful of our favourite pieces.

Now available on printed t-shirts, with the full series soon to be available as posters, we're suddenly fearful for the state of our bank balance.
