Stop Working and Look at These Pets Dressed as Hip-Hop Icons

Dog it like it's hot.

VH1 Hip Hop Honors: All Hail the Queens airs live on VH1 July 11 at 9 p.m. The excitement is killing us, but we discovered something to make the time go by a little faster: pets dressed up as hip-hop icons. Yup.

As it turns out, your pets lead secret lives when you’re not around: They turn into rappers. We caught VH1 staffers’ pets in their natural hip-hop environments, and the results are both adorable and badass. Can you guess which artists were the inspiration for these looks? Take a gander, and give us your guesses in the comments below. Catch The Secret Life of Pets when it hits theaters July 8.
