Spellbound! Watch a Supercut of 50 Rappers Spelling Their Names

The S-to-the-P-to-the-I-to-the-N fully endorses this way to waste two minutes

Check out this inspiring piece of rap dorkery, as the crew from internet culture vultures Slacktory cut up the long history of rappers spelling their names, from M-A-S-T-E-R G-with-the-double-E up through the N-A-S, of course. It’s certainly not exhaustive, missing a huge chunk of rap between 1979 and 1986, a time when spelling your name in your raps was at its statistical peak, but the Slacktory dudes are humorists not scientists, and we’ll forgive them for creating such an engrossing C-L-I-P.
