There’s no denying that Brooklyn-based Pop Chart Lab is the master of the infographic (we can personally vouch for ‘The Delectable Kaleidoscope of Candy Bars‘), and their latest cataloging delight is of the rapper variety. The 60” x 40” wall map boasts the brand’s most comprehensive taxonomy of hip-hop nomenclatures to date, organizing a dizzying array of 1,000 figures in the rap industry. Insane in the membrane.

Among categories such as “Similarity to a Cartoon Character” (Danger Mouse) and “Audacious Misspelling” (Eminem), is “NYC,” which includes Flatbush Zombies, Sugar Hill Gang, and Lordz of Brooklyn, to name a few. But we won’t spoil the interconnecting fun; head over to Pop Chart Lab to see if your favorites made the cut (we’re willing to bet they did), and to check out their cleverly astute classifications. The map can be yours for less than a hundred dollar bill, y’all – $90.
