You’re never too old to enjoy toys. We don’t mean adult toys. We’re talking about toys and action figures that people of all ages tend to collect, and um, play with…or display in its original casing, like “The 40-Year-Old Virgin.” Hip-hop made the connection between rappers and toys pretty early on, and before you know it, rappers had toy deals to accompany their record deals.
It’s still a recurring thing, with some mainstream rappers releasing action figures just last year. So to provide you with some more items to spend money on, here’s a little trip through the history of hip-hop toys, with 16 figurines inspired by rappers. Collect them, play with them, do whatever you want with them. Well, not whatever you want.
