This year has been a pretty big one as far as huge rap albums go. Jay-Z released Magna Carta Holy Grail, Kanye released Yeezus, Drake released Nothing Was the Same, and next month Eminem will release The Marshal Mathers LP 2. Those are some big names. What’s interesting, though, is that none of the artwork for these albums caused any controversy. Laughter? Oh yes, they caused that. But not controversy.
This didn’t use to be the case. There was a time where the covers of rap albums were almost as controversial as the content, if not more so. And today we’re going to take a look at some of them.
Did we miss any big ones? Then be sure to let us know.
