A banner day on the Internet! Heroes of rap bloggers and indie rock bloggers who wish they were rap bloggers Dipset are all over the place! First up, former Purple City council member Hell Rell is accusing The Source of payola, claiming he was told to pay a writer $1,000 for a mixtape review.
It’s the final of the Anatomically Incorrect Bracket here in our Worst Album Cover Of The Year Tournament. Really, what more can you say about these two covers, except that I suspect that Ted Nugent would be very impressed by Hell Rell’s mouth, and he should probably invite the bullet-toothed rapper over for a home-cooked meal sometime soon? Could you imagine being a fly on the wall there? Anyway, voting’s after the jump.
Much like Spank Rock and Benny Blanco’s greasy hindquarters, many of you think that Hell Rell’s For The Hell Of It happens to be one of the best album covers of 2007. (I happen to agree with you on this one.) Surely this means that the two faces of R&B/hip-hop evil will win this round in a walk? Or will the bullet-mouthed Diplomat have enough ammo to take out Bow Wow and Omarion?
There are two days of first-round voting to go in our Worst Album Cover Of The Year Tournament–the field so far is here–and today we turn our attentions back to the Anatomically Incorrect Bracket, where we find two entries that show the downside of not keeping up with your hygienic routines. Will Hell Rell’s mouth of lead chomp its way through whatever bacteria is making its way across Michael Stipe’s bald pate? It’s up to you to decide!
