1. Every Rap Album Cover Is Irish… On St. Patrick’s Day.

    StPatricksDay_EveryRapCoverIsIrish

    As the saying goes, “Everybody’s Irish on St. Patrick’s Day.” And rap albums are no exception. Sure, there’s ye olde standby, House of Pain. But with the big green day just around the corner (this Saturday, March 17th, to be specific), we here at ego trip have taken a cue from that great traditional Irish eatery, McDonald’s – and its annual celebratory Shamrock Shake – and re-imagined special St. Patty’s Day album editions of some of hip-hop’s finest works – past and present. Hold onto your shillelaghs and feast your eyes. Rap – a Gaelic ol’ time for all!

      Never would have thought to notice before, but the Celtics jersey really brings out the Mark Wahlberg in Fif’s expression on ‘Kiss Me I’m Irish or Die Tryin’”.

      Lil’ Flip was just too far ahead of his time with that Leprechaun album he did.
