If you happen to have an appreciation for both hip hop and art, you're definitely going to want to check out 'Fly Art' on Tumblr. The images uploaded to the account feature bold white lyrics from popular songs overlaying classical art pieces.

It's common for artists to source from the past and it's not even unheard of to see crossovers between music and art. However, each of the lyric and painting choices on Fly Art are perfectly matched. William-Adolphe Bouguereau's 'The Dance' featuring females frolicking in the clouds is mixed with lyrics from Pharrell's Happy, while a painting by Mabuse of Adam and Eve is matched with lyrics from Kendrick Lamar's 'B*tch Don't Kill by Vibe,' warning: "I am a sinner who's probably gonna sin again."
