It’s time for another edition of Picture Perfect, and this week, we linked up with professional hip-hop photographer and amazing all-around artistic talent Alexander Richter to break down some of the most iconic photos from his many years of capturing images of our favorite rap stars. Without knowing it, you’ve probably seen Alexander’s work all over your Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook feeds, and definitely on blogs like NahRight. And that’s not by accident. Dude makes phenomenal pictures, straight up, and they’ve been used for everything from album covers to press junkets to feature stories in magazines in the U.S. and overseas, and in turn have spread like wildfire to make a major impact online as well (whether he’s been properly credited or not). Read below as Alexander Richter takes us behind the lens to discuss these ten timeless photos he’s made of rap stars—from 50 Cent to Mac Miller to The Clipse—in detail. As you will find out, there’s way more to it than just point and click. Respect the shooter.

When it was time to choose someone to set off our new feature series Picture Perfect, where we get the stories behind our favorite artists’ Instagram flicks, it was a no-brainer to holler at Retch. Not only is Retch one of the dopest young rappers out right now (peep his latest project Polo Sporting Goods produced entirely by Thelonious Martin for proof), but his IG feed is off the chain. Whether he’s posting pics of him and his homies smoking excessive amounts of weed and/or hanging with the waviest of females, posing with your favorite hip-hop personalities (and the occasional movie star), or piecing together hilarious videos of nighttime moves through NYC, Retchy P’s been consistently killing it on the ‘Gram. So we connected with him earlier this week to get some insight into a dozen of his most compelling pics, and we also asked him to choose his favorite video clip from his recent IG footage. Here’s our first ever Picture Perfect with Retch, and yes, it’s lit!
Beyonce has been sharing some pics from her and Jay’s time at Coachella over the past couple of weekends and among them was this black and white shot of Hov and Nas shooting the shit during some downtime.
Hit the jump for a few more candids, including a couple of shots of Jay doing it the ski mask way.
As previously reported, Kid Cudi will have a role in HBO’s new Entourage flick and today he appeared on set in a picture with the movie’s writer/director Doug Ellin.

Cam just posted this pic on his Instagram simply with the caption:
“#QB #HARLEM #UwasntThere”
Hopefully this means there’ll be some music on the way. Even if there isn’t, there’s like decades of history behind this.
According to my source, Nas and Cam saw each other, got to talking without any awkwardness or old tension. The photo wasn’t forced. Respect all around. And the best part, there was even talk of future collaboration.
Maybe that was just polite lip service but maybe, if we’re lucky, there will be a Killa x Godson Dipset x Bravehearts song someday.
New York Fashion Week is in full swing and that means lots of parties with gorgeous people and free flowing liquor. Last night at The Westway, Cam hosted the Afterparty for the VFILES Made Fashion F/W Show. Dame and JuJu were also in the building and the capes were flapping. Hit the jump to check out some pics.
