Tiles of Wisdom: Classy Decor for Those Who Appreciate a Good Rap Hook

Mashups are the best thing ever next to sliced bread and those involving rap rhymes top our list of godsends such as Max Siedentopf‘s ‘Tiles of Wisdom.’ The Amsterdam-based artist created a mashup of old and new with a series of 9 15×15 tiles decorated with a traditional white and blue pattern often displayed with a wise proverb or perhaps a lovely poem except that this time, they’re outfitted with something less appropriate. Always putting a clever spin on the mundane, Siedentopf opted for street wisdom with rhymes from the likes of non other than ‪Ludacris, Nicki Minaj, LMFAO, and Lil Jon among others. With hooks from ‘Anaconda’ and ‘Bubble Butt,’ what hip-hop connoisseur wouldn’t appreciate these lovely ceramics?
