  1. You all are about to be the most controversial rap bloggers in the sphere with those picks.

  2. WHOA…I think you should stick with this one.

    How about the MC A.D.E. one? The next Wreck the Technique article has one that is definitely worthy of this list.

    The Known Rulers! Wow..Speechless.

  3. WOW dude. I gotta step my rap game up, I haven’t heard of hardly any of these dudes but they definitely did it proper with their covers.

    That known rulers joint looks real tight, especially given the album name. And if you ever see an LP by Facedown definitely pick it up for me (I’ll get you back)

  4. maybe this audio of FACEDOWN “Illegal Drugs Really Hurt” will hold you over until I (or you) find the hard copy.

    There are 6 on Amazon, but they’re like 30 bucks and up.

    And if any of ya’ll want audio for any of these releases check Bust the Facts. That’s where I found most of the album covers.

  5. i’m trying to cop that skinny boys album. i feel their whole steez.

  6. […] guess this is sort of anti-cliamactic after I posted the fake “top rap album covers” list a few days ago.  A list that included many obscure album covers that may or may not be […]

  7. Wow! Joke or not, you got me @ #10! LOL!! I’m flattered!
