9. Cam’ron – Confessions of Fire
8. Devastatin’ Dave – Zip Zap Rap
No one really knew what he was zip zap yapping about (sample lyrics: “Rip dibby zap, da zip dap du wap, This is what I call the Zip Zap Rap. Hichichichy be back in a sec…”), but this album cover speaks loud and clear. It says, “I’m butt ugly.”
7. Lil Flip – The Leprechaun
6. Tony Tee – Time to Get Physical
For an album titled Time to Get Physical, the man-woman ratio on Tony Tee’s album cover is suspect. Not to mention that the last thing you ever want to see on an album cover is the unsightly male camel toe.
5. Ghostface Killah – Bulletproof Wallets
4. Lil Cease – The Wonderful World of Cease A Leo
3. DJ Drama & Plies – From Bottom to Top
The first time I saw this artwork, I kept wondering why Plies had that look like he was stuck in an excruciatingly painful act of some sort. Then I noticed the CD title, From Bottom to Top, and it all made sense.
2. B.G. – Concrete Jungle
B.G. standing in between two shirtless weed carriers who just so happen to be on their knees? Looks like something is about to go down. The guy on the right has even moved his chain and hat to the back for the sake of convenience.
1. Raekwon – Only Built 4 Cuban Linx
Cold masterpiece, no doubt. Arguably the best semi-solo album to ever come of the Wu-Tang camp. However, none of that would’ve been possible without Ghost standing beside (or behind, in this case) his main man Raekwon on nearly every song. In fact, this cover affirms that Rae and Ghost had a very close relationship. That said, I’ve always wondered if the smoke emitting from Rae’s head was a result of the hard pounding he seems to be taking from Ghost.

Luckily, Rick Cortes decided to put his PS skills to good use:
One last thing…
As a reward for making it to the end of the list, here are some sexy album covers:
