I 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 “tighter” than the list we (B-TOWN, rezmatic, zeckwreck, and myself) came up with.  I think there are some amazing covers in this list.  Though, it would’ve been fun to have broadened the pool of contributors. It is, if nothing else, a very good start. peep…
