28. Wu-Tang Clan, Enter the Wu-Tang: 36 Chambers (1993)

Art Direction: Jacqueline Murphy
Photographer: Daniel Hastings
Label: Loud

The crew cover is a staple in hip-hop: Line up the homies and take a picture. But the Wu-Tang swarm added one minor but very crucial distinction. Either in a show of unity or in preparation for a heist, they were all masked. Further obscuring things is a minor blur, drawing attention to the soon-to-be legendary W logo acting as a beacon in the background.
