Based on MF Doom & Madlib's

Based on Lil B's

Loving the contest of champions/liquid swords homage, that album is great. Be cool if they did one for the beastie boys "check your head" album. I hate that you can't do anything without "controversy" I am really liking all these covers.

A cover for Thor for an artist whose look is inspired from Doom. Makes sense.

Never heard of Lil B before today but looking at the original it's actually based off the album Blue Flame
