The 25 Best Album Covers of 2012

20. Heems, Nehru Jackets

Label: Greedhead
Art Director: Aakash Nihalani

Heems' solo mixtape, Nehru Jackets, is little more than a 25-song tribute to Queens and the children of migration. The cover itself—created by Aakash Nihalani—is a tribute to Parle G biscuits, one of the oldest brand names in India, and it makes Heems look like the grown up Parle G kid (who is actually a girl.)

While Nehru Jackets is not overtly political, Heems did release it in conjunction with the Queens-based non-profit SEVA NY.
