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.
