A$AP Mob recently unveiled the cover for its upcoming album, Lord$ Never Worry. The group compilation, which drops tomorrow (August 28th), features an animated gif as the main artwork with torching flames burning up around the posse. Each member on the cover appears in a matching A$AP Mob baseball jersey, sporting a combatant look, cyphering around a baseball bat. While gif album covers aren’t common in hip-hop, applying sports-themed looks has been favored by rappers and publications in the past. With the look repeatedly reinvigorated, XXL takes a look at other album (and magazine) covers that are sports-themed inspired. Click through the slideshow above.
