It's been over a decade since Curtis Jackson a.k.a. rapper 50 Cent got shot in the face. As you probably know, he continues to talk about it to this day. In fact, Fiddy not talking about getting capped in the face is like Jimmy Buffett not singing about booze: Absolutely unfathomable. Meanwhile, two graphic designers have come up with a highly innovative advertising campaign for the Smithsonian comparing Fiddy to Teddy Roosevelt, one of the most badass Presidents of all time. It's a hell of a portfolio item. The creators note that the graphics aren't actually for the Smithsonian, but rather a school art project. But, hey, kudos to them. We can pretend it's real. So, what do a rapper from Jamaica, Queens, and the 26th President of the United States have in common?
Minor historical inaccuracy here: On October 14, 1912, while campaigning for the Bull Moose Party, Roosevelt was shot before a speech in Milwaukee (not during it). The bullet entered his chest after being slowed by both his glasses case and a 50-page copy of the speech in his jacket. Despite some visible bleeding, Roosevelt gave the speech anyway, starting things out like a total boss: "Ladies and gentlemen, I don't know whether you fully understand that I have just been shot; but it takes more than that to kill a Bull Moose."
Andrew Jackson and Genghis Khan are also envisioned as being "Historically Hardcore":
