50 Worst Hip Hop Album Covers of All Time by La Liko
We recently made a news post about Lil’ Wayne’s new album entitled Tha Carter III. The post we made was on the legitimacy of the album cover. Since we made that post, it turns out that the cover with Lil’ Wayne depicted as a baby wearing a full suit, tattoos, and complete with pinky ring turned out to be verifiable as the official cover for the album.
Now we’ve been making jokes with each other and talking about bad hip hop album covers for years, and especially lately since Lil’ Wayne’s new album cover debuted. This got us to thinking about how bad of a rep our culture of hip hop has for album artwork. We got to searching for articles on the worst hip hop album artwork of all time, and really didn’t come up with much.
So, as you can figure…we started looking at individual album covers, the drinks came out, we got outta control and we formulated the most thorough and extensive Top 50 Worst Hip Hop Album Covers of All Time list.
Our contending guidelines for album artwork were:
Use of Flames
Overuse of Self
Makeup on Dudes
Ridiculous Set Props
and Ultimate Perpetrator
Individual awards for each category will be delivered. Prepare yourselves for THE LIST.
