Got Spades on the Brain? DJ Sarasa and Asami One have found the cure. Last month the self-proclaimed producers and designers of the Tokyo-based B-Girl lifestyle brand, Mynority Classics, recently blessed poker fiends and card sharks alike with a new brand of hip-hop-inspired playing cards. Whether you’re into high stakes gambling or old fashioned fun, these cards are perfect for any rap junkies looking for a new way to indulge in hip-hop culture.
Japanese painter Sayori Wada used traditional Japanese calligraphy pens to hand drawn each card individually. The cards feature iconic faces from the golden age of hip-hop like Biz Markie, Busta Rhymes, Big L, and J Dilla, and are remarkable for their keen sense of detail. Trios like Run DMC, and The Beastie Boys embellish the three of hearts and three of diamonds, while royalty like Queen Latifah and 45King hold it down for the face cards. The back of the hands are also skillfully illustrated with Wada’s own collection of Japanese brush pens in the ressemblance of 90’s cassette tapes.
Bringing back classic hip-hop, tapes and games? Well played MC, we see what you did there.
