There isn’t a simpler way to express philosophies, cultural relevance and seemingly unimportant ideas than memes. Throughout the years, Hip Hop has had its fair share as well. In fact, some within the culture have benefited tremendously from memes of all type. Some have found interesting ways of flexing their knowledge on the culture at large while others utilize memes to engage in hilarious shit-talking. Just in case you missed some of the funniest takes on life the internet can offer, we’re here to help through memes describing today’s top Hip Hop stories.
This week, What A Time To Be Alive becomes the album of the week and social media has an interesting take on Pope Francis’s first trip to the U.S.
Jumpman, Jumpman, Jumpman,
What A Time To Be Alive was a huge win for Future and Drake. For the week of September 20, 2015, both of Hip Hop’s biggest artist released one of the most hyped albums of the year.
The Alley Oop Of The Year
While many feel What A Time To Be Alive was more of a Future album featuring Drake. However, the album only catapulted Drizzy’s profile.
Drake & Future Of The Past
Lesson from these photos: Never let high school dictate one’s future. Clearly these very nerdy yearbook photos couldn’t reveal anything years down the line.
Meek Mill’s Feeling Left Out
While OVO and Freebandz grow in profile, Meek Mill continues to take L(s). At least he can still claim Nicki right?
President Obama and Joe Biden Feeling Froggy
With media coverage of the 2016 Presidential primaries at an all time high and Donald Trump the forerunner for the GOP spot, the former Apprentice host continues to take jabs at Obama’s eight years. Looks like POTUS and Vice President Joe Biden planning on dropping a diss.
Pope Francis & Obama Mixtape
Depending on the success of his “Back 2 Back” freestyle with Biden works out, maybe Obama can work with Pope Francis on his next mixtape.
Even Diddy Is Getting Involved
Could we see a “Feel So Good” remix with Diddy, Mase and Pope Francis? The internet seems to want it and they’re always right.
Pope Representing His City
Over a month past the successful marketing campaign brought on by Straight Outta Compton, the meme generator still manages to be useful.
Eazy E Couldn’t Have Said It Better
Reusing Eazy E’s “Boyz In The Hood” for Pope Francis is equally hilarious and genius.
R.I.P. Frank Gathers
Season two of Fox’s ratings juggernaut Empire premiered last week with Chris Rock playing the villainous Frank Gathers. Not only did central lead Lucious Lyon murder him but signed his daughter to Empire Enterprise.
