The Internet has a very strange relationship with Nicolas Cage. It likes to put his face on things because Nic Cage tends to make funny faces and is probably the greatest actor to ever live. (See: Face/Off, The Rock)

Whether it be The Wicker ManBad Lieutenant, Vampire's Kiss, or Raising Arizona, we can count on Nic Cage to give us a face that will live on the world wide web forever and ever. He's aware of his cult following on the 'net, and we here on Complex are card-carrying members of said cult.

So, naturally, we decided to put his face on some of our favorite rap album covers. Nic Cage as Rakim? Why not? The Cage as DMX? Sure. Everything makes sense. All of it. Let it happen. Don't be scared.
