5. Wiz Khalifa, O.N.I.F.C.
Label: Rostrum, Atlantic
Art Director: Greg Gigendad Burke, Fatima Bah
The '60s-inspired cover of O.N.I.F.C. was Wiz Khalifa attempting to move into the future, he says. And while people either loved it or hated it, we’ve got to give him props for truly embodying the rock-star lifestyle he’s talked about so much as of late.
Wiz sits in a leopard fur coat, shirtless, with his tattoos exposed, and somehow just represented him to the fullest. “I’m helping everyone get in touch with their inner sleaze,” he said in response to the hate on Twitter, and that he did.
