People involved with hip-hop often talk about it as a game. Though this is not intended litterally, hip-hop did come up during the same age as and parallel to videogames; from the late 70s to 80s they both came to fruition and formed into commercial behemoths in the 90s. As a completely pointless but nonetheless entertaining exercise (somewhat like a videogame) TRU imagines what some classic hip-hop album covers would’ve looked like if they’d switch places with the box art of that hallmark of any 80s baby’s youth, the wonder of 8-bit technology known as the Nintendo Entertainment System.
