Ill Time’s 13 Days of Halloween: An Illustrated Costume Party
Mass Appeal presents a holiday edition of Ill Time with costume ideas inspired by our favorite artists.
Update: It’s been a wild ride, and Halloween is finally here. To celebrate, we took a composite photo from our costume party last night and wrote up a recap, in verse, of course.
The road to Halloween has been fun and strange
from Wizard Khalifa to Lil Jon Wayne
We celebrated by taking a rapper’s name
turning it into a costume, and nothing was the same
A Mass Appeal party, the pick of the litter
Vampire strippers, green and blue liquor, even Big Kritter
We should have known better, all these egos together
Chief Keef was a chief, with a strap by the feather
Gi Riff Raff was clownin, sippin on lean
Said he was the chef, rap game Paula Deen
Usually calm, Bun Bee took offense
And a scuffle broke out, and that shit was a mess
The police arrived, and shut the thing down
Started handing out tickets and cuffed Danny Clown
Gucci Man had tears and a tattoo on his face
But all would be fine, Harvey Birdman could beat the case
Halloween can get a little weird at times, right? Everyone’s in costume, drunk, a slutty referee and a Ninja Turtle making out in the corner. There are eye balls in the punch. The clock hits midnight and the Rolls Royce turns back to a pumpkin. Those sort of things.
Well, we’re a little weird over here at Mass Appeal, too. Have you seen an Ill Time? There’s no fun in being boring, bland, regular, normal — fuck that. So we’re pretty pumped that Halloween is approaching and we can let our freak flag fly. So pumped in fact, that we’re going to count down the 13 days leading up to All Hallow’s Eve with some rapper inspired Ill Time drawings. It’s a collection of ghoulish sketches that ask the most important question: what would our favorite rappers dress up as?
