This collection of minimalist rappers and singers by Rene Mambembe is a clean interpretation of the grungier side of the music industry.

Featuring notable artists like Drake, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna and Kid Cudi, the collection uses vivid colors to illustrate famous personas often snapped by the tabloids. Though the media has certainty painted its own colorful portraits of these pop cultural icons from an unattractive or judgemental angle, it seems these stars hold critical elements of their own trademark style. As in Drake's case, he is seen with his signature bowl cut, Nicki Minaj with her dramatically blond locks, Kid Cudi with a red cap and finally Rihanna with her super sleek asymmetrical bob.
