For all the hip-hop heads out there, talented artist Strassenkoeter has an awesome set of portraits you'll probably want to take a look at.

Strassenkoeter has drawn a series of grayscale portraits of some of the most recognizable faces in hip-hop. The illustrations depict the MCs in a realistic fashion, with detailed expressions and facial features. In fact, it's almost like staring at a picture of the MCs featured, which just tells you how talented the artist is in capturing the realness of human emotion. Some of the figures he's illustrated include Ghostface Killah, Method Man, Red Man and Rakaa Iriscience of hip-hop group Dilated Peoples.

I love these portraits that Strassenkoeter has created. Hopefully, the artist will depict other hip-hoppers like Jay-Z and RZA in the near future.. Stats for Grayscale Hip-Hop Portraiture Trending: Older & Mild
