10 Old School Rap Album Covers That’d Probably Get Banned Today
Kanye West has every reason to be upset about his album cover for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy being banned because of its explicit nature. Artistic expression used to be so much easier to convey back in the day. These days with corporate sponsors, the sensitivity of special interest groups, and a plain old lack of creativity from artist, it seems like coming across iconic hip-hop album covers is hard to do. No to long ago it used to be the norm.
I know my co-workers ran through a list of controversial album covers the other day, but I was out sick (sue me) and didn’t get to add my two cents so check out 10 of my personal favorite rap album covers that would probably be banned by Walmart and stir major controversy if they were released today. —Rondell Conway
