Tumblr blog B4-XVI mashes up classical works of art with portraits of rappers, and the results are amazing. Above Rick Ross is juxtaposed with a portrait of Henry VIII, showing off their matching bling.
The site’s curator Cecilia Azcarate says she spends up to four hours a day searching out images from museums and rappers’ Instagrams.
