Chocolate and peanut butter.
Flowers and bees.
Chess and hip-hop.
Some things were made to be together.
The directive for this one: make a King and a Rook look like rappers. Not unlike Tupac, this rapper was shot down for being too edgy.
Hmm, How do you make a rapper more family friendly? Why going back in time when rappers rapped about having a good time and nothing else, that’s what you do!
I went for a vintage, I mean “old school”, look. Of course the powers that be ( I mean, the “man”) shot this down on the grounds that kids won’t “get” the reference to the 80’s. Personally, I disagree. That’s like saying I wouldn’t have recognized a hippie as a child, because that, too, was 20 years before my time. Jeez, I’m old.
Speaking of being old and out of touch, I was instructed to give them modern rap duds. Oh, and I was told not to make the pants too baggy, after all schools are having a problem with that.
So there you go. Rapping chess pieces.
