The four rappers are being honored by Spotify and RapCaviar.
If you rewind hundreds of years, the Romans used to honor influential people with statues, sculpting them and placing them in important establishments. These days, that practice isn't utilized as often with sculptures going out of style sometime between then and now. Spotify and RapCaviar are totally into the approach though, commissioning several artworks to be made so that we can celebrate a few of the top hip-hop stars of the year. In 2017, life-sized sculptures of 21 Savage, SZA and Metro Boomin were made for the Spotify RapCaviar Pantheon and now, a new batch of superstars will be on display inside of the Brooklyn Museum.
Spotify has always held a major focus on celebrating innovative artists and this year, they're doing so with the curators of their playlist RapCaviar, creating four sculptures that will be displayed until April 7 at the Brooklyn Museum. The new class of honorees includes four names that made a big shake last year: Cardi B, Juice WRLD, Gunna and Jaden Smith. The statues are pretty lifelike and are definitely special to witness in person. They will only be up for a few more days so be sure to catch them if you find yourself in Brooklyn.
Take a look below at the sculptures.
