Though the album art world can be pretty scary in terms of paying homage, rapper Eminem pays homage to the Beastie Boys with his newest release.

Highly intentional, it’s hard to miss the iconic artwork and how Eminem’s most recent album looks almost identical to the 1986 album ‘License To Ill’  from the Beastie Boys.


There’s no outspoken reason why as of yet, and since it’s Eminem, we doubt there will ever be one. But what do you think? Cool? Or tacky?
