album covers

Another year gone by, another twelve months of great albums, mixtapes and songs to soundtrack various parties, commutes and roadtrips. But it’s also been a banner year for artwork, be it for mixtapes or albums, across the board. 2013 saw the resurgence of hand-drawn covers, a particular focus on portrait frames, and the first-ever appearance of .gif and Instagram video album covers (shoutout to Childish Gambino and Lloyd Banks, respectively, with respect to Action Bronson). As part of our year-end wrapup, XXL takes a look back at the ten best—and ten worst—album and mixtape covers of 2013.
