Ikonische Hip Hop Album Cover Foto Sets in Google Street View | Wo wurde das Coverbild geschossen?!

Iconic Hip Hop Albums in Google Street View

"Sag mal Papa, wo haben die Ikonen des HipHop eigentlich ihre Coverfoto gemacht!?"

Ok ok, diese Frage werde ich wohl niemals zu hören bekommen und die Antwort interessiert mich mehr als meine Söhne, aber wo denn eigentlich!? Die Jungs von Massappeal haben sich von der klassischen Albumtour des Guardian beeinflussen lassen und haben via Google Streetview nach den original Sets der Covershoots gesucht und diese auch gefunden. Buddy Emser hatte letztes Jahr sein FB-Profilbild in Long Beach CA, 21st Street Ecke Lewis gemacht in Anlehnung an das Cover von Warren Gs Album Regulator und wenn Ihr in den Staaten seid, könnt Ihr das nun mit Euren Ikonen des HipHop auch machen - hier die besten Cover-Plätze.


Ice Cube

NAS - 'ILLMATIC'

Album Photo Credit: Danny Clinch
In lieu of the 21st anniversary of this hip hip classic, we will start here first. The cover was shot at the intersection of 10th St and 41st Ave in Queensbridge, one of the largest projects in America. Nas sampled from Michael Jackson, Whodini and the Gap Band but it was the insert used on the intro of The Genesis ft Jungle and AZ that was from the graffiti classic film,Wild Style that was the hardest one to clear.
Sollten Euch noch Cover-Ort-Wünsche einfallen, könnt Ihr den Jungs von Massappeal Eure bitte hier unten im Link übermitteln und mal schauen wo Euer Lieblingscover hergestellt wurde. Geiler Shice.
