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.
