The 20 Best Rapper Art Moments of 2012

2. Kehinde Wiley Paints for Santigold's Master of My Make-Believe Album Cover

Date: May 1

Santigold commissioned Kehinde Wiley for a background painting in her Master of My Make-Believe album cover. The concept, that Santi creative directed, came from an idea to present three different versions of herself: two "identical twin lady guards" in custom Alexander Wang leotards and one tough-looking guy character in a suit. The painting by Wiley shows Santigold in a riding outfit, accompanied by a horse. Watch the making-of video on ArtInfo.
