I've seen what must be dozens 3 feet high and rising pastiches, but damned if I can remember what any of them were.

There have to be more of these

ill fuckin put a paste on those (Neanderthal), Sunday, 9 February 2020 19:04 (seven months ago) link

Maybe if we broaden it to “reference other hip hop album covers”. I dont think there are a ton of parodies tbh

Reference is fine

In that case...

Nas’ “Hip Hop is Dead” is kind of a callback to Too $hort’s “Life is...”

No, Pen and Pixel actually did the Keith cover

That doesn't preclude it from being a parody

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Monday, 10 February 2020 00:57 (seven months ago) link

Yes, but considering the shit he often talked about that style of rap, and consider the in-jokes made im the liner notes themselves (including a RZA dig where he advertised an upcoming album by "Robbie Analog"), I don't think he hired Pen and Pixel because he had been craving a No Limit look. Esp given how ridic the cover is even by P&P standards with the gorillas and all.

(and yes i know RZA wasn't part of No Limit,Keith just seemed to be indiscriminate about who he made fun of)

Keith was legit into No Limit

The Outkast and RZA disses were genuine attempts at beef
