Why do rappers look so constipated on their CD covers?

    Are they in pain or are they suffering from some sort of blockage?

    When I go to the music store, every single rap CD cover has a grimacing dude on it. Why is that?

    I'm talking about black and white rappers before anyone calls me a rayciss.

    Give us an example. A link to a picture of what you are referring to.

    That's funny:D

    But any genre that tries to be "hard", the artist(s) has that look. Grunge, hard rock from the 80s, Classical Opera (just kidding).

    I think the rappers today aren't even close to the look of, say, Kiss with the hardcore leather, facepaint and firebreathing. Every generation is different.

    (Can you imagine Mozart in leather, sporting a "grill" and considered the bad boy of classical)

    Listening to their own music maybe?

    Our daughter gave her nephew an iTunes card for his birthday yesterday. It was packaged (by her) in a CD album of "K.O. and the Pectates," with one of those grimacing faces on it. I honestly don't know if this is a joke or not, but it's kind of funny either way, constipation-wise.

    Its a defiant look. A gangster - Scarface wannabe - image that connects well with an angry youth population.

    Probably for the first time they realized what paying taxes is all about.
