The Periodic Table of Hip-Hop
Class is in session for our latest lesson on the essential elements of hip-hop! Produced in conjunction with A3C, hip-hop's biggest stage, this tabular arrangement of eminent MCs catalogues 223 naturally occurring, never-word-slurring artists in all, from N(as) and (Dr) Dre to (Mf) Doom and (A$)AP Rocky to (D)rake and Snoop D-O-(gg). Featuring color-coded labels indicating their favored genres--with special indicators for originators of a style--each MC has been meticulously hand-illustrated and assigned an appropriate chemical symbol, along with notations for debut year and geographic area of origin. Boasting chemistry like no science class has ever seen, this fly-entific periodic table swaps halogens and noble gasses for rap’s hallowed-gents and noble lasses—and is sure to be enjoyed far more than periodically.
As a bad-ass bonus, each purchase of this print comes with a discount code for 2014 A3C Festival tickets! The 10th Anniversary A3C Festival is Hip-Hop's Annual Pilgrimage to Atlanta, GA, October 8-12, 2014.

Each print is signed and numbered by the artists from a first printing of 500, and comes packaged in a Pop Chart Lab Test Tube. See the menu to the right for finishing options, and note that framed prints require an additional 3-4 business days of processing time.
