Rappers’ Commandments: One Million Of Them

New website presents popular Twitter tweets from artists and rappers as the modern day Ten Commandments.

Bet you didn't know there are more than just Ten Commandments. More than 613, even.

In fact, according to the latest compiled list of insights from rappers who avidly tweet, there are about one million.

Celia Azcarate, Creator of One Million Commandments, is collecting pearls of wisdom from rappers and other artists to create the 21st Century version of the ancient Decalogue.

The website consists of sliders featuring Moses and the tabernacles, and each slide has a different "mitzvah." The longer you dwindle on a single slide, different religious icons pop-up on the screen, including crucifixes, pictures of the Holy Bible, white doves and hands clasped in prayer.

Examples:

“Says a lot about u if u not feeling us.”

“Wake up … hit the weed …”

“Live today. Love today.”

“Don’t be rude.”

One Million Commandments has not quite reached the one million mark; it is an ongoing work in progress. Azcarate adds to the site as different artists post related tidbits on their twitter accounts.

Got 99 problems? Maybe one of these new commandments can help.
