The spoofed up animal rap portraits by Berkley Illustrations are accompanied with popular rap song quotes. The talented duo Ryan and Lucy from Portland, Oregon are behind Berkley Illustrations. The retro portraiture is inspired by their love for animals, pop culture quotes and rap lyrics.

The hilarious rap quotes scribbled beneath the portraits just make them even more authentic and gag-worthy. The hand-drawn illustrations are done with markers and colored pencils. The only digitizing done is the background color. The portraits would make outrageously funny gifts and are available for purchase on Etsy.

The animal rap portraits have popular rap lyrics accompanying them. One of the illustrations features a big bear with a mafia-inspired outfit on with Biggie Smalls lyrics saying, "Damn it feels good to be a gangster." Another knee-slapping one features a pipe-puffing panda bear and reads, "The Crown is mine because I drop ill rhymes."
