Worst Hip-Hop And R&B Album Covers Of 2010

Worst Hip-Hop And R&B Album Covers Of 2010

From a belly-exposed, shower-cap-wearing Bizarre to a borderline offensive, half gorilla-faced Sheek Louch and a simply out-of-place Ne-Yo, some of the worst hip-hop and R&B album covers of 2010 came courtesy of some our favorite artists who just happened to drop the ball art-wise with their latest efforts.

Check out The Juice's pick of the ten worst hip-hop and R&B album covers of the year and tell us your personal pick of 2010 in the comments section.

Independence Day

10. Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, "Uni 5"

While the members of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony look uber dapper on the "Uni 5" cover, we're a little turned off by the boy band-like pose on this cover. Backstreet Boys' "Millenium," anyone?

Independence Day

9. Rick Ross, "The Albert Anastasia EP"

We love us some Rick Ross, but from the pinky ring to the fur around the bawse's neck, we can't get past all the pimp action on here.


Independence Day

8. N.E.R.D., "Nothing"

When trying to be too creative goes wrong. Pharrell popped a few feathers on his hat and strapped it around his neck till it left a mark. Oh, and don't forget the necklace with the pendant on his back instead of on his chest. How clever! Not.

Independence Day

7. Fashawn, "Grizzly City 3"

Why is Fashawn a baseball player? Why is this cover purple? Wait, is there an actual game happening here? And is he staring at his album title or about to pitch? So confused!

Independence Day

6. Ghostface Killah, "Apollo Kids"

We didn't realize how much we liked the naked ladies, the fish scaling and the cooking of the breakfast, among other notable Ghostface covers, until this came out. The worst part? The font choice for Ghost's name at the top. Sigh.

Independence Day

5. Bizarre, "Friday Night At St. Andrews"

As adorable as Bizarre is, we're just not fans of the overweight, tatted-up dude bouncing his nekkid belly all over the place. We've got our fix with Rick Ross and Fat Joe.

Independence Day

4. Sadat X, "Wild Cowboys"

Clearly, baseball fields aren't the move for album covers. This one is just so sad and gloomy with the dark sky and fog, it's just depressing.

Independence Day

3. Ne-Yo, "Libra Scale"

We were really sad that this album cover made the list (because we heart Ne-Yo), but, from the random ninjas in the back to Ne-Yo's awkward pose, everything about this is just wrong.

Independence Day

2. Z-Ro, "Heroin"

So, basically Z-Ro's insinuating he's music is so dope it'll make us high? Fail.
