Minimalist Rap Lyric Posters

These Minimalist Drawings Lend a Modern Flair to Classic Rap Music

— July 9, 2013 — Art & Design
Carbonmade user Zavennajjar has released a series of French minimalist rap posters that transform different classic rap songs into sleek, uncluttered illustrations. With this series, the talented illustrator tackled everything from Lil’ Wayne’s 2008 hit ‘Lollipop,’ to Public Enemy’s ‘Fight the Power.’

To create these designs, Zavennajjar took the major themes from each song and incorporated them into the drawing. He also displays the artist’s name, the year the song was released, its title and one quintessential line from the song’s lyrics that can sum up the track as a whole. One particularly clever example is that of Jay-Z’s and Alicia Keys’s duet ‘Empire State of Mind.’ Zavennajjar depicts this song using an illustration of the Empire State Building; however, the bottom of the building resembles a microphone, adding a musical flair to the urban cityscape.

These minimalist rap posters are the perfect way to pay tribute to one of the most popular and fastest-growing music genres of the 21st century. By combining creativity, enthusiasm and a passion for rap, Zavennajjar has produced some prints that will definitely be on every rap lover’s must-have list for the summer.
