If you’ve never considered the nexus between classical art and the world of hip hop, well, OK, you’re not the only one. Happily, though, the creators of a Tumblr called B4-XVI have the vision that many of us lack, and their blog is a series of composite images that draw parallels between prominent rappers and art dating from the 16th century and before. It’s as excellent as it sounds, and we’ve collected some of our favorites for your viewing pleasure. (There are plenty more to be seen here.)
