Gerade erst haben uns Buzz-T und Falk Schacht mit ihrem dopen Projekt „Hamburg Undercover“ an die Original-Plätze von legendären Hamburger Hip Hop-Alben geführt. Das Mass Appeal Magazin scheint Wind davon bekommen zu haben und legt nun seinerseits direkt mit einen zweiten Teil der „Iconic Hip Hop Albums in Google Street View“-Reihe nach (Part 1 der Serie gibt’s hier). Berücksichtigung fanden in der Fortsetzung dieser unterhaltsamen Reihe unter anderem die Cover zu Classic-Alben von Artist wie Eminem, Jay Z, Beastie Boys, TI, Mack 10, Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, Kool Moe Dee, Fabolous, Noreaga oder Del Tha Funkee Homosapien. Viel Spaß damit:

While some may argue that the digital era has taken away from how consumers view albums, it has definitely allowed us to reinvigorate the art form. Back in April, we embarked on a journey to discover where some of our favorite hip hop album covers were shot using Google Maps. After reading through your numerous suggestions, we spent the past few months digging for more gems. – mass appeal
