windows so dark you need a flashlight to see me.

been reading the no limit posts over at cocaine blunts and hip hop tapes and seeing that gallery of classic no limit album covers made me yearn for the days when i actually thought that mercedes "the back end" album was going to come out. much like the mr. serv on album featured above it may or may not have come out im not sure because no limit was releasing what seemed like (and for a while i think they were) an album a week and i simply couldnt keep up (coincidentally i was planning a "buu's favorite moments in rap" series which featured mid/late 90s era no limit...goddammit). i used to love looking through no limit cd booklets because it was literally like a 12 page fold out of some of the most amazing album covers youve ever seen, and all courtesy of your boys at pen and pixel. i think ego trip's "book of rap lists" put it best when they said (more or less) that if you wanted "champagne sipping grizzly bears" these were your guys. Im glad to see that theyre still up to their old tricks (i.e. making cd covers). Check out Pen and Pixel's current work at the link.

kane & abel "am I my brother's keeper" ... my all time favorite. Not to mention any number of Mo' B. Dick albums that never graced the shelves.

Oh, Sons Of Funk...where have thou gone? For real, the cover of "Rear End" is to white No Limit fans what the Contra code is to Nintendo fans; you just know of its importance without anyone having to tell you.

yeah i have been pretty amped about these no limit posts myself. i think i still have a large part of the no limit back catalog from my time at WTBU, some unheard classics like Mac - World War III and FUll Blooded - Memorial Day. I need to go pull out Down SOuth Hustlers and West Coast Bad Boys right now.
