Usually when you see rappers with animals, it's usually dead and wrapped around said rapper's body. From minks to chinchilla, there's always some expensive fur or leather chillin' on the shoulders of rap's biggest bosses, waiting for an animal activist to dump red paint on it. This time not so much (so PETA put your buckets away).
In the grand tradition of awesome rapper memes, the Tumblr blog Rappers and Animals Photoshops rappers in with random animals like sea otters and kittens. The randomness of the animal placements makes these memes so brilliant. Plus, seeing Drake cuddling with a cat other than a video vixen looks even more right somehow. We found 10 of our favorite "rappers and animals" photos. Check out how a cuddly koala or a dog with sunglasses can suck the gangster out of any photographic situation.
