On December 10, 2002, Chicago rapper Common released his fifth album Electric Circus. The album had the hit song “Come Close” featuring Mary J. Blige but if you take a look at the cover art, Common had a lot of famous rappers featured in the artwork. It’s a virtual Where’s Waldo of rap musicians.
Rapper Black Thought, Q-Tip, and Erykah Badu all appear on the psychedelic design. Jill Scott, Pharrell, and J Dilla are all present. The concept is a throwback to ATCQ’s Midnight Marauders. Take a look for yourself and see who you can spot.
