JR Blastoff / J Casanova
GZA, RZA, & Bill Murray

It's simple, draw a rapper using photoshop, illustrator, paint, on a piece of paper then scan it, whatever. My favourite will win a DC Deck, my second favourite will win a Focus t-shirt.

All entries will be uploaded to the blog.

Please add your name and the name of the rapper you have chosen to draw.
