I Tried to Create Some Tumblr Rap Memes

Get rich, die tryin', or just Photoshop some pictures of rappers and see if Urban Outfitters will give you a book deal.

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

Colin Pharrell Cam'Ron Diaz

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

LudaChris Cornell

So there you go. Feel free to help these viruses spread. It's time for me to join the millionaire meme club.
