Artist Draws Hip-Hop Stars as Animals

Patrick Moberg Griz Markie Animal Pharm

From Snoop Dogg and Tha Dogg Pound, to Kanye and the teddy bear avatar of his album covers, and even Rap Cat, hip-hop artists have only occasionally likened themselves to animals because, I suspect, few animals are as gangsta as a G. Certainly, no MC in her or his right mind would choose a duck or a lamb as their animal kingdom kin, but illustrator Patrick Moberg (of NYGirlOfMyDreams internet fame) has other ideas. His Animal Pharm series is a pun-tastic set of drawings that casts rap and r&b stars as more or less cutesy animals, like ?uestdove, Eminhen and De La Mole. Some of them are available as t-shirts, but not my favorite of the series, Griz Markie (above). (YepYep)
