Salt-N-Pepa, Public Enemy, Biggie Smalls, 2Pac, and Run-DMC are the artists who are part of a new series of buttons created by Portland, Oregon artist Nathan McKee, who zinesters may know for his fanzine Fake Your Own Death.

These aren’t digitally manipulated Photoshop print-outs, but rather hand drawn so when you buy and wear them at school or concerts, they’re sure to start up a discussion. There’s even a cool Michael Jackson set, covering all prime eras of MJ’s adult life in illustrated form.
