Pure dopeness alert!

China Heights presents Deez Nuts, a series of paintings on canvas accompanied by a self-produced publication by artist Mark Drew. As well as being the co-founder of China Heights, Mark Drew is an Australian graphic artist, based in Tokyo since 2009. His works primarily reference music, pivoting on a heavy nostalgia for ’90s rap music.

Deez Nuts is a new body of work, which began as a zine of the same name. For this exhibition, Drew has painted large-scale versions of the illustrations found within the zine. The works show Peanuts comics with lyrics from Nas, Wu-Tang Clan, N.W.A, Gang Starr, Public Enemy and more, as dialogue.

posse cut

Competition is at the heart of hip-hop, an art form where each rapper wants to be better than the next. And there was never a better opportunity for a rapper to prove his or her worth than the posse cut, which is all about strategizing the freshest way to stand apart.

The rare few would come to single-handedly define a track—think Nicki Minaj on “Monster.” Others would be content to play their roles and defer to the track’s bigger stars. Then there were those rappers who complemented each other perfectly, playing off each other’s strengths. And sometimes…well, some guys would just flop.

We defined a posse cut as a collaborative track between at least four rappers, and bringing together at least two acts (so A$AP Rocky’s “Fuckin’ Problems” doesn’t make it, because it has only three rapped verses, and Wu-Tang’s “Protect Ya Neck” wouldn’t qualify because they’re all part of the same group).

But ultimately, what defines a posse cut is the spirit of competition: The sense that each rapper has a burning desire to earn their spot and make a breakout performance (like Nas on “Live at the BBQ”) or to completely dominate the track (like Mystikal on “Make ‘Em Say Uhh!”).

So without further ado, here are The 25 Best Posse Cuts in Rap History.

Check the list here. Similar choices as this list from a few years ago.
