Nicki-Minaj-Lookin-Ass-Nigga-Downloa-MP3 Some artists will do anything to create hype for an upcoming album--offend their own people, adopt corny gimmicks, diss whoever's poppin --ANYTHING--which is easier than ever before in trainwreck-obsessed America. Here are the ten most controversial rap album covers (so far).
Nicki-Minaj-Lookin-Ass-Nigga-Downloa-MP3 Nicki Minaj “Lookin A$$ N***a” single art We doubt legendary Civil Rights leader Malcolm X died for...this. His most iconic photo on a NICKI MINAJ cover? It's clear she didn't learn ANYTHING from Weezy's Emmett Till disaster.
Nas “N*gger” First, this... nas_nigger_390921 Then... Nas-Untitled You knew, we knew, everyone knew, that Def Jam wasn't going to market, promote and sale a Hip-Hop album entitled "N*gger."
2livecrew 2 Live Crew “As Nasty As They Wanna Be” Uncle Luke made history by winning his 1st Amendment Supreme Court case and classic filth ensued. This cover is his crowning achievement.
2bcqy9 Makaveli (2pac) “The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory” Pac’s posthumous classic came with an infamous cover that fueled widespread outrage and eventually earned a disclaimer.
1-n.w.a.-niggaz-4-life-1991-controversial-rap-album-covers NWA “N*ggaz4Life” White folks were terrified of NWA's "Gangsta Rap" movement that peaked with this notorious cover (that Ruthless records broke down and flipped).
game-jesus-piece-cover The Game “Jesus Piece” Black Piru Jesus? Game knew better. Orrrrr probably didn't.
collage Dead Prez “Let’s Get Free” Classic Hip-Hop album with a cover deeper than Rap. Way too deep for the label who later blurred out the guns.
trapordie Jeezy X “Trap Or Die 2: By Any Means Necessary” mixtape This was slightly more corny than offensive but overall a terrible idea that should've never happened.
my-beautiful-dark-twisted-fantasy-deluxe-kanye-west-28132129 Kanye West “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” For every brilliant Yeezy idea is one that's completely WTF-worthy. This was that one.
The-Coup-Party-Music-1024x1024 The Coup “Party Music” Blowing up the World Trade on your album cover after 9/11? Not cool, ever.
