Few rappers are as influential as Cam’ron. The rap superstar’s impact on music and the hip-hop lexicon is only outdone by his influence on the style and fashion. In the early 2000’s, Cam’ron popularized wearing laffy-taffy colored faux furs and had an entire generation of rap fans looking like ghetto Elizabeth Taylors. Now he serves as a muse for artists pursuing other creative forms of expression. 

Eight-year-old hip-hop head Yung Lenox is such a big fan of Mr. Cam’ron that he felt moved to make a 4.5-foot mosaic of his favorite rapper, all out of Lego. 

Shout to #YungLenox he made this out of Lego.. I actually met him when I was in Seattle.. #MeanWhile #FanFriday

Yung Lenox is a super-talented hip-hop portraitist and Lego enthusiast. Since the age of five, encouraged by his father, Skip, a graffiti artist, Lenox has been garnering attention online for his marker drawings of classic hip-hop album covers, like Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s Return to the 36 Chambers and others. He’s drawn so much attention, in fact, that he is the subject of a recently launched Kickstarter for a documentary titled “Live Fast, Draw Yung.”

Lenox sells prints of some of his artworks on his Instagram, where you can find drawings, and Lego and Minecraft creations of everything from Dr. Doom to The Simpsons. But it’s in his drawings of classic hip-hop moments that he really shines. If there was ever any doubt that hip-hop touches fans of all ages and walks of life, Yung Lenox is proof of that fact. 

Sold Out. Thank you to everyone that helps supports do it yourself artists.
