Here’s Hip-Hop’s August Birthdays

While August usually indicates the beginning of summer, for these rapper it means they get to celebrate their birthdays. We’ve been making this gallery for months, but August’s list of birthday celebrants is definitely diverse and unpredictable to say the least. Who would of ever thought hip-hop pioneers like Chuck D, KRS-One, and MCA would share the same birthday month as enigmatic influential newcomers Young Thug, Chief Keef, and Bobby Shmurda.
