Year's Best Rap Concert Poster Honors Maurice Sendak

Here is a promotional poster for the joint tour just announced by Brooklyn rapper/producer El-P and Atlanta rapper Killer Mike. El-P produced Killer Mike’s highly acclaimed new album, R.A.P., which came out today and is sounding excellent on my iTunes as I type. The opening acts will be Mr. Motherfucking Exquire and Despot. So expect a rendition of last year’s super-awesome “Huzzah” remix to stop every show. Who does that Wild Thing look so much like? It’s like a “Crank Yankers” muppet of Vic Tayback or something.
