The New York City Rap Artist Infographic shows us exactly what so many of past and present hip hop artists have in common -- their roots in the Big Apple.

From featuring vintage big names like Notorious B.I.G., Tupac and 50 cent, to rappers populating the airwaves today, like Jay-Z and Nicki Minaj, and more obscure personalities like Ghostface Killah, this infographic maps out artists. By organizing them by hometown, fanatics can extrapolate and draw their own interpretations from the visually stimulating resource.

This new infographic from 'A Very Small Array' shows a clear connection between borough and talent, which should be no surprise as many artists cite their city as influential factors on their art.
