Ever wondered what it would look like if kittens replaced some of your favorite rappers and singers on their album covers? Well, your dreams are now a reality. N.W.A., OutKast, D’Angelo, Prince and others switch spots with some furry felines to recreate their respective covers. Food stamp IDs, gold chains, fitted hats and jail cells are all included. Check out how these Kittens Take Over Classic Hip-Hop and R&B Album Covers below.
‘Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version’
Ol’ Dirty Bastard
If you’ve been following hip-hop since the early ’90s then you still have ODB’s food stamp ID photo embedded in your brain. This poor kitty looks like he had a rough day with his hair all messed up as he puts on the death stare.
‘What’s the 411?’
Mary J. Blige
This kitten is following in the footsteps of the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul, Mary J. Blige, by keeping cool and mysterious in the shadows while asking everyone “What’s the 411?”
Taking a violet vest from Prince’s closet, this little feline wanted to make its point by stirring up some controversy on this album cover. At least he didn’t call Dave Chappelle to replace him on this artwork.
This is one cat you do not want to mess with. With the all-black baseball cap, this kitty is staring deep in your soul as he delivers some West Coast flavor for the cover of Dr. Dre’s ‘The Chronic.’
‘Check Your Head’
You may have seen these hip-hop kittens in an alley somewhere in the middle of Brooklyn, spitting lyrics and chilling in the cut. Don’t be fooled by how cute they look. These kittens don’t play.
‘Straight Outta Compton’
Soon after starring on the cover of ‘The Chronic,’ the Dr. Dre cat returns with some friends to re-do N.W.A.’s the ‘Straight Outta Compton’ album cover. The kitten on the right is pointing out the fact that he’s the illest.
These poor kittens seem a bit shook to be taking the photo for this Salt-N-Pepa cover. While the one with the shades looks cool and calm, the other two appear quite uncomfortable. Apparently it’s very necessary for their overall look.
‘It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back’
These Public Enemy cats will tell you like it is and they’re not afraid to be put behind bars for their “meow”-ful lyrics either. Check out the Chuck D kitten’s signature hat and the Flavor Flav feline rocking the famous clock and sunglasses.
We’re sure this D’Angelo kitten is using his powers to have all the little lady kitties coming his way. Check out the gold Jesus piece too. After all, sometimes the opposite sex enjoys seeing a little bling.
The OutKast duo lend their swag to these two cats. On the original cover, Big Boi rocks a white T-shirt — his kitty counterpart is a shaggy white kind sporting a Dungeon Family chain. As for Andre 3000’s feline match, a head wrap, ring and necklace proves he’s as equally fashion forward as the rapper.
Which of These Kitten-Invaded Album Covers Is Your Favorite?
As you see, kittens and hip-hop and R&B are a match made in heaven. Even the hardest covers look all cuddly and cute with these pets gracing the spots the rappers usually sit in.
