In honor of Guy Fieri's tête-à-tête with 50 Cent, we remember some standout moments in food-rap photography.

Yesterday was a historic day in the annals of food and rap music history: Guy Fieri met 50 Cent backstage at “LIVE with Kelly and Michael” and blessed the Internet with a photo of the unlikely duo. We say “unlikely” because we’ve never mentioned Fif and The Frosty-Tipped Gawd in the same sentence before. But come to think of it, they both have a penchant for graphic tees and garish cars, so maybe this was bound to happen.

Celeb chefs and actors seem to get along pretty well: Gwyneth Paltrow and Mario Batali are BFF, and Stanley Tucci hangs with Eric Ripert. But it’s only on that rare special occasion, when the moon is just right, that you might spot Hov with Tom Colicchio, or Rick Ross kicking it with Marcus Samuelsson. Photographic evidence of these moments is harder to find than you’d expect, but we did some digging to find the G.O.A.T. food-rap images.
