Music streaming service Spotify launched the highly influential RapCaviar playlist this year and to celebrate the three biggest breakthrough hip hop artists, they have built the inaugural RapCaviar Pantheon. Every year, this installation will pay tribute to some of hip hop’s rising stars in unique artistic formats.

For 2017, Spotify chose to create life-size sculptures of the inductees: Metro Boomin, SZA and 21 Savage. Developed in partnership with SpecialGuest and created using Kuka robotic arms at Neoset Designs and Proptogroup, the sculptures were recently revealed at the Brooklyn Museum. Spotify also partnered with Director X to create an exclusive short film narrated by Pharrell that chronicles the sculptures’ creation, which you can view below:
