We bloggers like to believe that we are a sophisticated lot. We appreciate Hip Hop in all of its various forms and some of us like to constantly critique our beloved Hip Hop in hopes that it will become something that we can be more proud of. But on the real, we all have a special place in our hearts for thuggery, just as long as it's executed well ("Ain't No Fun" by Snoop Dogg comes to mind). It is for these reasons that it seemed so interesting when the bloggersphere became temporarily enchanted with a website that lists every Pen & Pixel album cover ever made. You remember the bedazzled foolishness that is Pen & Pixel, don't you?
If not, just glance at the image above. Once this starts to ring a bell, let's remember what types of Hip Hop artists were dying to be Pen & Pixel-ated. If you guessed many people who have done time in prison or are still locked away for such nefarious deeds as shooting a police officer through a door or taping a woman to a chair and burning her alive, then you are correct. Think I'm joking? Just watch the first two minutes of the clip below.
