The Hip-Hop Sgt. Pepper’s Cover Art

The Hip-Hop Sgt. Pepper's Cover Art

A while back I wrote about my 25 Desert Island Records, in the process com­par­ing Common’s Be to The Beatle’s Abbey Road. Later on in the week, I was quite sur­prised to see this gem of an album cover sur­face in my hip-hop blog­gery; an elab­o­rate repro­duc­tion of the The Bea­t­les orig­i­nal Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover gar­nished with hip-hop leg­ends. DK com­piles his own list of 20 favorite hip-hop albums, and pro­vides insight into the process of its creation.

See the orig­i­nal cover, or check DKP­re­sents out.
