6. Curren$y, Covert Coupe

Over the years, Curren$y has delivered some memorable cover art. He's borrowed from video games (Tecmo Super Bowl), for example, and generally struck cord with nods to '80s popular culture. Covert Coupe comes off more seriously. Still, it is an effective romp and signals a turn from his recent sonic trips with Ski Beatz to a (slightly tighter) musical journey with Alchemist.
