The hip hop periodic table of elements

Friday, August 29, 2014


In collaboration with the AC3 Hip Hop Festival coming up in Atlanta, on October 8-12, Pop Chart Lab has created The Periodic Table of Hip Hop, featuring 223 of the biggest names of the genre.
Produced in conjunction with A3C, hip-hop's biggest stage, this tabular arrangement of eminent MCs catalogues 223 naturally occurring, never-word-slurring artists in all, from N(as) and (Dr) Dre to (Mf) Doom and (A$)AP Rocky to (D)rake and Snoop D-O-(gg). Featuring color-coded labels indicating their favored genres--with special indicators for originators of a style--each MC has been meticulously hand-illustrated and assigned an appropriate chemical symbol, along with notations for debut year and geographic area of origin. Boasting chemistry like no science class has ever seen, this fly-entific periodic table swaps halogens and noble gasses for rap’s hallowed-gents and noble lasses—and is sure to be enjoyed far more than periodically.

Inspired by the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, a woman in India has created the "Rice Bucket Challenge," which is aimed at feeding the poor in her country.

"It's local, desi and a practical solution to issues in the vicinity. Instead of wasting water on ice bucket challenge, save water and feed the hungry," Manju Latha wrote on her Facebook page.

Her post has got over 150 responses within 24 hours, and people have started making voluntary donations in their respective localities.
