5 Best Rap Album Cover Designers

In this article we will highlight some of the best rap album cover designers in the market right now. These designers are capable of bringing your album covers to life, attracting new fan base and expressing your vision on the album.

A well designed rap album cover expands your market and sales by simply conveying bringing the message together on the cover.

However, it is better to maintain a minimalist approach on the album cover design to enhance simplicity. Moreover, most artists tend to drop hints about their personal life to the public and some are quite sad when you understand the meaning of the designs.

When we go back to the CD era, rappers attracted new fans by incorporating a design that drew them with a curiosity of what your rap was about.

Regardless of the fact that we find our music online, it is not that different in this modern age as an album cover can attract a ton of fans.

Let’s have a look at some of the most legendary rap albums that took this concept to use.

Best Rap Album Cover Designs of All Time

  1. Notorious B.I.G, Ready to Die
  2. Kanye West, 808’s & Heartbreak
  3. Drake, Nothing was the Same
  4. Dr Dre, The Chronic
  5. The Fugees, The Score

Notorious B.I.G, Ready to Die

One of my favorite design approaches to an album cover is a minimalistic design. The Notorious B.I.G’s Ready to Die album cover contrasts a white background with a black photo.

The design is famously known as an ultimate universal symbol of human innocence and new life.

Additionally, the photo of a seated baby , cross-legged with only a diaper, direct eye contact and a large afro for his age further adds on the innocence.

It  simply signified B.I.G’S innocent youth life with the miraculous hair size contrasting his age for his knowledge and intellect.

Kanye West, 808’s & Heartbreak

The title of the album is quite sad, as Kanye brings to light two of his tragic and life-defining moments. The death of his mother, Donda West and the dissolution of his engagement to Alexis Phifer.

That being said, the album cover features a broken heart, with the pieces being pulled apart by two cartoon gloved hands.

Ideally, with a sky blue background, the design is both minimalist and the point is quite clear, luring you to the music.

If you would like to get an album cover design that will blow your fans away and attract more fans to your art, we have prepared a list of designers who at an affordable price will transform your vision.
