Fresh 12" Covers
Best thread idea I've seen in a bit, so I wanted to change it a little.
Since there have been many more singles over time I thought a discussion of the best looking 12"s would be in order since we have started discussing cover art.
Off the top of my head I would say these are five fresh covers (not necessarily the freshest):
Shadrach, Meshach and Abendego- Beastie Boys
Mic Check - Aceyalone
Silent Treatment - the Roots (just b/c I use to know the girl)
Jazz - A Tribe Called Quest
Fortified Live - Reflection Eternal
Many of the covers listed are tight, but hardly any of them reach into the past. I feel like this site neglects what was done before. This is not a dis against people that just started to listen to hip hop (I mean, you have to start sometime), but learn your history.
That Yo Mama 12" is dope.
Motion Man "Mo like flows on"
Punk Barbarians "hooptie car"
I spent hours with the CoFlow End 2 End Burners 12" cover once on a particular night that involved 5 hits of gremlinz.
Bad Meets Evil is dope
Arsonists Pyromaniax cover
Co-Flow's End to End burners
Both with ill graff on it. That Co-Flow shit took a while to decipher.
PB Wolf's Styles, Crews, Flows, Beats cover with the kid and the lady like some 50's 60's shit.
I kinda liked the Jedi Mind Tricks "Heavenly Divine" cover... and the Afu-Ra "Defeat" cover was nice, it has ill art on it.
I'm glad my idea about covers was so FRESH, i feel special! haha, j.k
I know I am reppin my people now, but what about the Porn Theatre Ushers record with the bummy lookin dude in front of Liberty Book (a porno mag/peep show spot in the bEan.)
Shadow's Midnite in a Perfect World -it's got a toothless bum in record store gripping a 16 oz can of Shlitz. now that's cover art.
Tha Pharcyde- Yo Mama
The art is a cartoon of yo mama, with almost every snap they lay down in the track. Funny as shit.
4. Non Phixion- I Shot Raegan
YOu gotta love the "Own My Own Shit" cover it has them shittin on the front and check pukin in a urinal on the back with a 22oz a.k.a Hulk in his hand...
That shit is too funny...
1. Company Flow- End to End Burner
2. Breez Evahflowin- Refined/On the Mic
3. Unspoken Heard- Jamboree
J5's "concrete schoolyard" import....
and Co-Flo's "Blind/Tragedy of War"
i'm basically talking about the overall packaging, art, layout, and design.
the freddie foxxx from this year "part of my life" was pretty dope!!!
