Eat This Tumblr: Rappers & Cereals

Enjoy a breakfast high in swag.

  • Gucci grahams on the chain with the V-cuts/ Gucci grahams in the shade with my feet up/ Gucci graham pepper wings and a freeze cup/  Gucci grahams in their face, watch 'em freeze up
  • Okay start with straight shots and then pop cartons of whole milk.
  • "Why are we so blind to see the whole grain taste?"
  • I go hard with the mothafuckin' flakes!
  • I'm whole grain, yeah I'm whole grain.
  • Extraordinary swag and a mouth full of A$AP Rocky Road
  • Ugh!
  • "I wanna, li-li-li-lick you from yo’ spoon to yo’ toes
"
  • Academy Award Winning! It's hard out here for a trix.
  • Wake up in the morning and I ask myself: Is life worth living? Should I eat some Corn Pacs myself?
  • Silly kids, Trix are for daddy.
  • yela

We know that rappers have a long, storied affiliation with cereal—even before Kendrick Lamar’s “Cartoons and Cereal,” there were classics like LL Cool J’s “Milky Cereal,” and DJ Z-Trip’s 2005 Breakfast Club, which begins with Murs proclaiming, “I like to have a good time and on Saturday mornings I used to like to get a big, fat bowl of cereal and watch cartoons, motherfucker. If you can’t relate to this song, you’re taking this shit too serious.” And the connection runs deeper, still: just watch a video of K. Dot showering his crowd with the classic morning treat, or see how Fruity Pebbles are a staple on his tour rider.

Needless to say, there is a Tumblr that celebrates this part of the break food-rap world Venn Diagram, and what a fine Tumblr it is. Rappers are mashed up with popular cereal boxes, and the names of the products are reimagined to punning effect.
