Check out this intricately detailed taxonomy of 266 rap and hip-hop artist names, organized according to semantics. What we learn from this chart is that there are way too many rappers who have “Lil” as the first part of their stage name, and only one who uses a punctuation mark in their moniker (that would be ?uestlove). We shudder to think how long this took the artist to draft. Pick up the graphic in poster or t-shirt form over at Pop Chart Lab.
