The Periodic Table Of Hip Hop

The Periodic Table Of Hip Hop

The Periodic Table Of Hip Hop

Like the Beastie Boys said, rap music is the sound of science. You need perfect combinations of flow, funk, fun, wisdom, with a catalyst of braggadocio to spark off a reaction.

So it's only appropriate that the greatest rap stars should find themselves arranged into a periodic table of hip hop, created by the good people at Pop Chart Lab.

Each 'element' has a name, a geographic origin, a year of first release and a genre, as well as a two-letter symbol; for example: Eminem becomes Em; while DJ Afrika Bambaataa is awarded the most prestigious two letters of Dj.

You can buy a signed 24" x 18" print for $23, available to preorder now, with shipping due to begin on Wednesday 3 September. Head here to get yours.
