41 Hip Hop Inspirations

From Gangsta Ad Campaigns to Hip Hop LEGO

— February 13, 2010 — Pop Culture
These hip hop inspirations will have you getting crunk, dropping it like it's hot and wishing you had a pimp cup. Even upper class suburbanites can appreciate shoes with boomboxes in them and rap star LEGO figurines.

If you love everything hip hop, you'll love this cluster like a fat kid loves cake.

Implications - Hip hop culture is a powerful pop cultural phenomenon, and it's no surprise to see that its influence is increasingly spreading to all different kinds of products and designs, from photography to kitchen tools. Although once only accepted by the young and the rebellious, it is a cultural force that is increasingly becoming more widely accepted in all areas of society.
