If at any point you need to be told why this is a timeless cover you are not a real person, Silkk is EMERGING forth from the electronic TV realm to shock YOU personally with his album. That's an honor man
I mean come on dude
A lot of the No Limit covers are complete ass, no matter how much I like 'em, but this one really feels like a serious cover, one of the least tacky No Limit covers for (arguably) their least tacky artist. They really played up the No Limit Soldier (bout it!) aesthetic, and I think it looks great. R.I.P. the great Soulja Slim
Any cover where the artist on the cover is drenched in blood is a good cover in my book, I defy you to find a counter-example. Probably my favorite DMX cover because of the blank vacant stare on his face. It says a lot without much elaborate or over-symbolic artsy shit.
Sorry let me just cover my eyes for a second... what a cover, truly enlightening and illuminating, that Paul Slayton has a bright mouth, i think he really shines on this album, good music for cookout parties with grills and all that, really a diamond in the rough
The best Mystikal cover don't try to argue with me. There's probably a super duper weird hidden meaning here with the Mystikal inside of the sphere and the Mystikal in the clouds or whatever, but I'm tired
Biggie next to a hearse. The awful dark irony of this being the cover and title of his posthumous album is not lost on me. Really a strange moment in music, timeless cover and timeless album.
damn near one of the best covers ever. This is tight. Really, though, get me a poster of this and you're a friend for life, I'm not kidding
Bad-ass cover, really great scene depicted here. I think this is the #2
snoop cover, obviously Doggystyle will live forever but this is close... do the red bricks imply that the bloods threw him in the clink? who knows?
Part 2: non-rap covers, coming soon
