The recent buzz surrounding the David Cam’ron Tumblr page has inspired a new brand of VICE Magazine ‘Tumblr Rap Memes.’ Taking note of the success emanating from the merger between images of UK Prime Minister David Cameron with those of rapper Cam’ron, VICE decided to produce a similar meme collection with an entirely new feel.

The VICE Tumblr Rap Memes are hilarious adaptations of iconic imagery. The symbolic photos tied to the legendary Pac Man game and the immortalized ET film are only some of the relics that have been provided with a hilarious hip-hop twist. Through the splicing in of stars like Andre 3000, Missy Elliot and 50 Cent, VICE has given rise to the kind of humor that can only be provided by ridiculous (if not absurd) juxtapositions. For those looking to get on board the meme train, these comical music-meets-pop culture portraits are an excellent place to start.  Stats for Hilarious Hip-Hop Memes Trending: Older & Average
