I Tried to Create Some Tumblr Rap Memes
Apr 3 2012
This weekend, I was linked to the David Cam'ron tumblr page on no less than seven occasions. A link frequency I haven't seen since #Kony. For those of you that are somehow, despite the name of the tumblr and the image above, unable to work it out, the blog is images of David Cameron and the rapper Cam'ron, spliced together using an image editing program that the kids on the street are calling "Photoshop."
As someone who generally works quite hard on the content I create, I was pleasantly surprised by the ease with which "a hit" can be created. So I decided to have a shot at creating my own rapper-and-someone-who-is-not-a-rapper memes. If one of these hasn't been made into a book to be sold at Urban Outfitters by Christmas, I'm going to be VERY upset.
Andre (The Seal) 3000
Lisa "Left Eye" Kudrow
LL Cool JJ72
Missy Elliot (the kid from ET)
50 Centator John McCain
And here's some other stuff that I thought of that I'm too lazy to make:
Eve (like biblical Eve, but also like the rapper Eve)
Iggy Azealia Banks
Ice Cuba Gooding Jr
Project Pat Butcher
Steve Tyler, The Creator
ASAP Rocky Balboa
Snoop Dogg the Bounty Hunter
Fat Joe Pesci
The Green Eminem (like the candy)
Dr. Meredith Dre (from Grey's Anatomy)
Machine Gun Kelly Rowland
Lil Wayne Rooney
HRH Queen Latifah II
Lil Chris Brown
So there you go. Feel free to help these viruses spread. It's time for me to join the millionaire meme club.
