Card Radar: Rap Quote Hip-Hop Playing Cards Volume 1: East vs. West



RapQuote's Hip-Hop Playing Cards is a fully custom deck prominently featuring quotes by famous rappers from each coast. The deck is designed by graphic designer, Troy Rojewski and produced by RapQuote.com, an awesome website delivering fresh quotes about love, life, money and more since 2001.


The design of the deck is aesthetically inspired by the Art Deco movement. The face cards come with original artwork showcasing 54 quotes from legendary East and West Coast artists. Ace, King, Queen, and Jack cards include Rakim, Ice Cube, Nas, Lauryn Hill, Snoop Dogg, KRS-One, 2Pac and more.


The deck is very well thought out with the contrast between the intricate borders and bold typography and the harsh (often NSFW) lyrics. I found myself going through each card trying to find certain recognizable artist and quote. That was unexpected and fun!


The card back has been designed to look like the retro audio cassette tape in all of its glory! Nice touch especially when it has been printed with stunning gold metallic ink giving it a classy street vibe!


The Hip-Hop Playing Cards are printed by the Expert Playing Card Company on premium quality, air cushion (linen) finish playing card stock. First Edition limited print run of 1,000 and are available now on store.rapquote.com for $20.
