“I love it when you call me King Louis XIII, throw your (turkey) legs in the ai-er, if youse goin to the Renaissance fai-er…”

There’s a reason why rap music was born in the 1970s and not the 1670s, and youjust saw it right there (sorry). But even if the music would’ve sucked, we now know the art would’ve reigned supreme, as evidenced by these 17th century-style portraits of Hip Hop stars. London-based artist Amar Stewart has created pieces for Biggie, Jay-Z, 2Pac, Rick Ross, Action Bronson, Mary J. Blige and more, giving each of them a regal look befitting of the time period. One thing is certain: Flavor Flav missed his calling as a court jester. [Purchase]
