16. RATKING, WIKI93
Label: XL Recordings
Art Director: Patrick "Wiki" Morales
What makes the cover of Wiki93 so great is also what makes the album so great. On one hand, it's admirably amateurish—Wiki and his crew are just young kids who love to rap and are damn good at it even if they aren't polished just yet. Meanwhile, the artwork was made by Wiki himself during his sophomore year art class.
"The cover was supposed to be some African mask type shit," explained Wiki. "But then it's got some like New York type tribal shit on it."
