Die Idee haben sie natürlich 1:1 von meinem facebook-Profilbild-Projekt (hier ist es das Bild #5) geklaut, dennoch darf das auf WHUDAT natürlich nicht fehlen: hier haben wir eine schöne Bilderserie von ikonischen HipHop-Plattencovern vor ihren Original-Schauplätzen in google Streetview. Und bei der Gelegenheit kündige ich schon einmal an, einige der nun folgenden Cover (die, zu denen ich einen Bezug habe) an den entsprechenden Locations nachzustellen, sobald ich das nächste Mal in der Nähe bin. Unter den Bildern gibt es eine kleine Beschreibung, weitere Infos zu den Platten & Plätzen gibt es bei MassAppeal. Enjoy:

„Shout out to The Guardian for inspiring us to embark on our own journey through the streets of Google Maps to discover where some of our favorite hip hop album covers were shot. We did a lot of digging to find the exact location of these shots, so we hope you enjoy.“
