How Does One of Hungarian Rapper’s paintings end up in 50 Cent’s office?

Hungary Today 2018.06.07.

Imre Hajdú, alias Dipa, is mostly known in the Hungarian hip-hop culture by his rap songs, but the scene is barely familiar with his painting career. He is a key member of the group called DSP, but he had already started to be involved in art in his teenage years and is currently working in the Müpa (Palace of Arts – Művészetek Palotája).


His painting work has been carried out in several places around the world, but he is proudest of the piece called Animal Ambition, which decorates 50 Cent’s home office. In 2014, 50 Cent was in Budapest to participate in the shooting of the movie Spy. After long planning with the help of his friends, Dipa gave the painting to the American rapper.

Dipa mostly loves to create portraits; he tries to visualise the personality of his model. His dream is to put on an exhibition.
