So Sprite, in conjunction with The Fader, is putting rap lyrics on its cans this summer, to honor a cultural synergy that stretches all the way from Kurtis Blow to A Tribe Called Quest to Drake. Which is a lovely tribute, sure, but the initial roster—Aubrey, Nas, Rakim, and a one-off from the Notorious B.I.G.—leaves much to be desired. No, a project of this magnitude requires a fuller sense of the hip-hop spectrum, which is why we’ve taken the liberty of proposing a few new cans of our own. (Including one of the four above—see if you can guess which!) Here are a few other suggestions.


Here we have 2 Chainz, Big Sean, and staff favorite Fetty Wap. There should probably be a whole Big Sean signature series.

Future (who has devoted a whole mixtape to this concept), Iggy Azalea, and Kanye.


Lil B, Missy Elliott, and Migos. The Migos quote is continued on the other side of the can.


Finally, heres O.T. Genasis, the eminently quotable Young Thug, and Vanilla Ice, who’s more of a Kraft Mac & Cheese man, which is also a fine and rap-friendly product, but once you’ve eaten enough of that, as the saying goes, “Obey your thirst.”
