How many rappers can possibly have a name that's anchored by the word big? Or lil? Or fat? Or slim? Or any other adjective used to describe size? The answer is a lot, and if you don't believe me, check out The Massive Map of Hip Hop Monikers—an extensive visualization of names in hip hop from Pop Chart Lab.

There's Big Moe, Big K.R.I.T., Big L, Big Unk, and so forth. Then there's Lil B, Lil Wayne, Lil Scrappy, Lil Keke, and so many more that you maybe forgot or never even knew existed. The spectacular savants from Pop Chart Lab have precluded this 60 inch by 40 inch poster with two other rap name prints—The Grand Taxonomy of Rap Names and the Magnificent Map of Rap Names.

But for $72, this one is far and away the most thorough. It divides names into cities, comic book characters, virtues, crime, and all kinds of crazy categories, connected by colorful dashes. It's like a colorful hip hop family tree. [Pop Chart Lab]

I feel bad for Bentley and Rolls-Royce. Their cars can be enjoyed whilst listening to musical selections from JS Bach or Luigi Boccherini, but are now more often surrounded in music videos by bouncing people with ostentatious jewelry, "hoes", and names like these.
