Legendary illustrator launches his own character based on hip hop culture.

Tenacious Toys is pumped to announce a pair of exclusive collectibles: two different Rap Kings GOONBOX 7-inch vinyl art toys designed by Chris B. Murray and produced with care by Clutter.

This is the first vinyl art toy by Philly artist Chris B. Murray who is best known for his illustrations and prints, and for his commercial work for clients like Jordan Brand, XXL, the NBA, Warner Bros, Marvel, Under Armour, the New York Times, and many more.

Chris grew up studying hip hop culture, which has driven his design sensibility as well as his work as a professional artist. His ongoing Rap Kings illustrated series highlights the groups he grew up listening to as well as current day artists. It started as a poster series, extended into other merch, and then ultimately lead him to create the series first vinyl toy, GOONBOX!

The concept for the GOONBOX character is an intentionally vague mashup born out of the hip hop era – a gritty street character that incorporates pieces of some of Chris’ favorite rappers, groups and various elements of hip hop culture. Many references can be found all over this figure: the camo pants, the bees, the pigeons, the backpack, the manhole cover, the flower. The boombox? Well, maybe GOONBOX loves hip hop so much that he or she was born with a boombox for a head?
