#BestBlackAlbumCovers is trending, and everybody’s celebrating. Especially Black Twitter

Back when people copped albums, be they vinyl or those circular things called CDs, the cover was often times what first drew buyers in while perusing in mythical structures called “record stores.” The result was some incredible covers that incorporated stunning artwork, stellar photography or engaging graphic design.

The #BestBlackAlbumCovers hashtag has been collating the best of the best when it comes to R&B and Hip-Hop music. Don’t be that guy that asks, “What about #BestWhiteAlbumCovers.” Please. Props to Son Of Baldwin for setting it off.
