    i ran across this font once, but can't remember the name to save my life.
    if anyone knows the name of that font can you please let me know?
    someone requested it, and i can't find it. i tried da font, no luck.
    anyone else know? i figure if anyone would know, it would be someone from here.
    thanks in advance.

    oh, and i'm reffering to the yellow font that spells out RAEKWON.

    and yes, im a lazy goat who doesnt feel like making one similar to it,
    but if worse comes to worse, i will.

    good luck,

    I'd bet 10:1 that it's designed for that single use.

    Some designer probably took a font they liked, and chopped it up.

    thanks dude. my friend said the same thing too.
    i started looking for similar serif fonts last night just in case..heh heh

    i posted this in FONTS FONTS FONTS lzast night,
    but it looks like no one goes to the "UNTITLED" section much.
     
  5. If you have that album, scan that section of the cover, try to isolate the words from the background as best as you can, then run it through whatthefont.com.

    fuckin a.

    i used the pic i posted on here to make the path.
    once i had the path, selected it, black fill in on a seperate layer,
    then cropped it, and it was only 30px. uploaded it, and it found the font.

    the name of the font is <a href=http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/t26/entropy/entropy/>entropy</a>.


    thanks mamerro!

  9. I WIN!!!

    You lucked out, man. Like Rummy, I was pretty sure that was a custom font... but then again, it's a rap album cover. They never spend too much effort on those.

    yeah, thanks again, man. i owe you one!
    i came across the font once, i think at my old job.
    that's why i knew it was out there somewhere.

    cuban linx and liquid swords are possibly the two best.
    i can't say which i like best though, they're both ill.

    the first gravediggas album was sick, but i dont know
    if you could consider that wu tang.
