More on album covers (courtesy of Erykah’s “Honey”)

That Eric B. & Rakim album cover (Paid in Full) is awesome; of course, one of the better known album covers (right up there with Nas’s Illmatic & BDP’s By All Means Necessary…which itself is a nod to a notable Malcom X image). However dated it may be, it’s not nearly as much as 1988’s Follow the Leader & 1992’s Don’t Sweat the Technique (I don’t remember what the first single was, but “Causalities of War” and “Don’t Sweat the Technique,” watch out now!) Look at those jackets on FTL – looks like some Milli Vanilli type wardrobe faux paux; And Don’t Sweat the Technique…I think I’ve seen somebody align that with C+C Music Factory.

Just for my own curiosity, that bass on “Don’t Sweat the Technique,” did Gangstarr use that somewhere along the line? Sure sounds it, but I can’t put my finger on it.
