This is the coolest thing you'll see all day.

If you ever wondered where exactly some of hip hop's most iconic album covers were photographed, you're not alone. 

The guys over at Nas' Mass Appeal magazine have, after a lot of detective work, tracked down exactly where the photos that appear on album covers including Warren G's 'Regulate... G Funk Era' and Nas' 'Illmatic' were taken. 

They then found the exact location in Google street view and have cleverly placed the cover in its original spot. 

Check out a handful of some of the results below.
