Pen + Pixel!

Pen + Pixel were dope in a fantastic / dreadful way in the late 90s. (They were a design company who specialised in OTT rap covers from about 93 - the mid 00s). If you saw the Louis Theroux Gangsta Rap documentary, then you saw Pen + Pixel's HQ.

^ Not Steve Carrell in The Office... the Pen + Pixel boys.

Check this interview out, VERY informative.

Anyway, here's my ten favourite classic / mental Pen + Pixel covers. Enjoy!
