We just discovered our favorite tumblr of the moment: FLY ART. It mashes classic works of art with hip-hop lyrics and it is quite brilliant. Students Gisella Velasco and Toni Potenciano have so perfectly paired infamous rap lyrics with historical works of art that we now cannot separate the two. We find ourselves chuckling now every time we hear Snoop tell us to ‘Drop it like it’s hot’ and visualize demons dropping eternally damned humans into Dirk Bouts’ Hell. Who knew Renoir and the Notorious BIG had so much in common?
