These are a great little collectors piece for not only Hip Hop fans but for general collectors as well - the designs are superbly done and you can feel that a lot of time, care and passion has gone into these with brilliant attention to detail and the puns used are simply hilarious. The sets have a really professional look and feel and are a great platform to showcase the artists involved, you can really tell that the sets are made by fans, for fans. The sets would look dope in a display frame in your home or studio making them a really smart gift for the Hip Hop head in your life.
You can grab Series 1 (Sports) or Series 2 (Horror) HERE and keep a close eye out for Series 3 which is coming REAL soon!
These are seriously dope, big shout out to Slippz for the Promo copy, much appreciate bro.
