If you’re a hiphophead with a penchant for vintage video games, we think we’ve found your favorite new Instagram account. 8-Bit Hip Hop celebrates hip hop legends from yesterday and today, glorified in ravishingly retro pixel art.

Posting a new hip hop figure errday, the account has so far covered the likes of Biggie, 2pac, Snoop, Dilla, J Cole, Chance The Rapper, Outkast, the entire Pro Era, Wu-Tang, Tribe Called Quest and TDE crews, and, most recently, the producers & DJ’s from Soulection, including the characteristic Mr Carmack.

We’re particularly fond of this pixelated take on the boys from Black Hippy crew…
