RECORD covers of graffiti

Recommended Posts

let's see what y'all got out there when it comes to graff on record covers. oh yeah, i said RECORDS, so that DZINE Michael Jackson CD ain't gonna cut it. NO COMPACT DISCS PLEASE.

How many people know that Serve is Louie Vega's brother? He did this as well as Louie's 1st album (i got it somewhere....)

The infamous Jellybean album with the sick Seen rooftop. Seen painted every surface of this roof- the cover is an aerial shot.

Bambaataa's Timezone project. I believe this is Futura, much like many Celluloid covers. Dondi is thanked on the back. Does anyone else have the record that Phase 2 did? Mine is the promo without the cover... how about the Futura/Clash 12"?

Two of MANY Sleeping Bag records with Gnome/Gemini ClockWorkKings art. They had the illest mid-80's style. Check out Gnome in Spraycan Art.

This might be a cop-out, but it surprises me how many people don't know what this 12" looks like. Classic bad 80's neighborhood graf- Hollis Town. Photo by Glenn E. Friedman.

Detail of the Malcolm McLaren "Duck Rock" LP- what "Buffalo Girls" came out on. This is the lettering that Dondi did for this project. Nice bugged box radio on the front of the sleeve too.

break.jpg

A great example of the shit that came out after Beat Street, the time when everyone wanted to sell the whole breaking/hiphop package. There are lots of "how to breakdance" records and they're usually so bad they're almost always hilarious.

This gem is something that dropped out of the sky, a early 80's jazz record with a Martha Cooper shot on the cover- the same duster/lizzie car in Subway Art but theis one is one frame behind. By the way, Mitchel Forman looks like such a herb I refuse to play the record.

"It's Christmas time in Hollis Queens. Mom's cookin chickin & collied greens."

 

I don't feel like scaning some of my records. I got some ISP records w/art by DREAM.

and people have the nerve to ask why graffiti and hip-hop shouldnt be associated!!!!

 

 

the coolest thing there is that JOHNNY ROTTEN was in TIME ZONE with afrikka bambaata. that track was ahead of its time by far.

Oh, trust me, that Mitchel Forman is completely herb-y. Don't chance your stylus with his style.

 

Recent Tommy Boy compilation had a graf cover that said Tommy Boy Records... very nice job.

 

I have some that are pretty hilariously bad.... but not a whole lot that are great.

 

16vandals is right on about the Malcom guest spot. Hot.

 

The Delta covers ae sick. If I'm not mistaken, they all started as canvases done with pretty ordinary acrylics by a very extraordinary guy.

yo 16V-

Time Zone was one of the many projects that Bam had going on. John Lydon only appeared on the "World Destruction" 12" but you're right- it's definitely ahead of its time. I remember hearing that on the radio when it was new and it's still slammin'.

 

sofa-

that Just Ice piece is nice nice nice. are those all canadian kids? that doesn't look like the east coast Aroe.

 

let's just keep it all RECORDS. NO CDS PLEASE! more on the way...

Sofarok - you from brighton? I am..

 

And yes, that would be NT.. Isn't NT basicly the old DBS though with a few (but little) changes? They have a lot of shit up.. But tbh, dont like half of it.. Still give the props for getting up so much though.. And they can do some quality pieces.

NT arent rap fans...

 

they are hip hop obsessives :) Although, tbh I dont know a single member of NT.. I just know a guy who paints quite a bit with them.. And judging from him, and that piece kinda backs it up, they are into all things hip hop.. Zulu Nation style stuff.. Kinda thing i dont really see the point of :)
