10) Black Jesus – TGSNT

Black Jesus #10

Black Jesus, depicted as a cosmic aura of foundation, eye makeup and blush, has qualified for the Dudes Wearing Makeup Award. Now can anyone tell me, what the hell was Wu-Tang thinking?

Dudes Wearing Makeup Award

9) Kriss Kross – Da Bomb

Kriss Kross #9

Yeah, something bombed alright…

8) Lil’ Wayne – Tha Carter III

Lil' Wayne #8

Ah yes, our inspiration for this article. An album cover so bizarre we went on record, along with 2 Dope Boyz, to call it a hoax when it first surfaced on Amazon.com. This album cover is unfortunately just as real as Dwayne’s mental health problems. Is that a Captain Planet pinky ring?

7) Cam’ron – Confessions of Fire

Cam'ron #7

Warning: This recording contains explicit language, fashion tips using items with feathers, and details of Cam’ron’s latest star crushes!

6) Hell Rell – For The Hell Of It

Hell Rell #6Just when you think Paul Wall is bad!

5) Lil’ Cease – The Wonderful World of Cease A Leo

Lil' Cease #5

Cease was very close to our Bitchassness Award, but Vanilla Ice snatched it right out with his party pants. Home girls are coming correct to cover that up for us. I would like to thank the proud owners of each of those arms.

4) Lil’ Flip – The Leprechaun

Lil' Flip #4

Lucky Nites Liquor, Clover G TV, Clover G Records…The Leprechaun…will someone please inform Lil’ Flip that he is about as Irish as I am.

3) Canibus – For Whom The Beat Tolls

Canibus #3

From the moment I saw this cover on Hip Hop Site when it came out in ‘07 I knew it had immediately gained a very special place as one of the worst hip hop album covers of all time.

2) Trick Daddy – Thug.com

Trick Daddy #2

There were arguments as to whether or not this should have been number one. The image quality is horrible, it’s a complete abuse of Photoshop, and it’s just plain bizarre. My favorite details are the psychotic look on Trick Daddy’s face, the fact that he’s sweating buckets, and the selection buttons on the top for music, sex, drugs, money, and death. Thug.com will forever be a classic in the Worst Hip Hop Album Covers of all time.

We proudly award our Photoshop Abuse Award.

1) Big Bear – Doin’ Thangs

Big Bear #1

We have made it to the number one Worst Hip Hop Album Cover of all time. What makes for the number one worst? It is a priceless combination of strangeness, abuse of Photoshop, overuse of set props with the plastic fruit, and present elements of gayness and bitchassness.

Big Bear, whose name is made out of honey, is depicted in a silk robe sitting at a table feasting with bears who also don silk robes and tiny little purple Shriner’s hats. They smoke cigars and drink from blinging goblets as Big Bear’s pinky ring blings at you as if it is winking the way the bear to his left who peers at you over its sunglasses is. For all its ridiculousness, Big Bear’s “Doin’ Thangs” is number one.

We proudly award our Strangeness Award.

    hahahahahahahahahah this brings me back to the days when I worked at Media Play. My friends and I would have to alphabatize the Rap section and make fun of these covers all day.

    Thanx for bringing back memories

    That was hilarious, man. Good job. :-)

    Either somebody a big No Limit/ Cash Money Fan or there was some big time hating going on…some of those covers were tight and had the whold industry biting….yeah some may be outdated now…any my blog will tell the truth about the best and worst Southern album covers.

  8. 9 OsloRecords November 24, 2008 at 2:44 am

    ok, I get it.. you don’t like pen n pixel’s artwork! The legendary designers produced hundreds of album covers for labels like No Limit and Cash Money, legendary artists like the Geto Boys, Mack 10, Eightball and MJG, and so on. Do some more resarch man! It’s like saying “I don’t like rap, cause they can’t even sing” or something.

    Good stuff, unfortunately most of the pictures arent available any more (or is it me?)

  10. 11 FB May 9, 2009 at 4:39 pm

    first of all damn your hard wit lousiania men!!then wat the fuck you got against 36?if you’ve listened the album you would know wat dey wanted to do

  11. 12 HoneyComb May 29, 2009 at 4:13 am

    i have to say i was 50/50 on this…some of the album covers were like nasty/no good, but some were dope. i thought snoop dogg’s cover was tight…but then i thought that paul wall’s cover was a bit scary. (tho i love his work/music). would have loved to seen andre nickatina’s cover’s…dude is tha bomb man! he is one of the best artists out there!! bet his covers are just as tight as his music!

  12. 13 asdf June 14, 2009 at 5:24 pm

    Awesome. That shit from the south was god awful. I was here for all of it and I was baffled the entire time.

  13. 14 AlmostIllmatic June 17, 2009 at 8:08 am

    Food & Liquor. Come on thats a classic album cover.

  14. 15 Urban Girl-93 June 30, 2009 at 12:02 pm

    The album covers I thought were ok are:

    Da Brat- Self Titled
    Lupe Fiasco- Food & Liquor
    Snoop Dogg- Da Game’s to Be Sold, Not to be Told
    Kris Kross- Da Bomb
    and Lil’ Wayne- Tha Carter III

    But, Damn, All of Master P’s Album Covers are “Not well Made”!

    LOL…nice. Iono, but the Canibus album kinda stuck to me as bein the most hilarious one for some reason.
