This series of illustrations is from my upcoming book, “Questions That Need Answers: A Really Niche Non-Definitive Guide to Hip Hop’s Unsung Punctuation Mark”.
This book explores some of the weirdest questions from 90s and 00s rap music in a fun way and also gives a deep dive into hip hop culture as a whole.
Each illustration represents my interpretation of a lyric. Enjoy!
