Lego Hip Hop Album Covers

The progressive online publication, Format Magazine, just took playing with Legos to a whole new level with their collection of 20 classic (and some not-so-classic) hip hop album covers recreated with those iconic plastic Lego men.

Shot in the Format studio by Nick Hanekom, and graphically produced by beat-maker Glen Manucdoc, the little Lego guys assume the notorious album cover poses once carried about by the likes of Ghostface Killah, Biz Markie and RUN-D.M.C., to name a few.

While reconstructing scenes with Lego figures has been done before, the hip hop album covers are the perfect combination, since many of us went straight from excessive time playing with the yellow figurines to an absurd amount of hours listening to the Beastie Boys.
