You can?t judge an album by its cover but you can learn a thing or two from its tracklist. The back art of J. Cole?s breakthrough mixtape The Warm Up shed light on the up-and-comer?s musical roots, interests, and skill set. Hollywood Cole’s flipside cover saw classic titles revisited and his own name in the production credits, not to mention RocNation tagging. This was great for hip-hop junkies, but sneakerheads had to take notice of the ?Orlando? Nike Air Max Penny 1s on his feet. The former hoop star showcased his love for both b-ball and sneakers as the colorway at that point hadn?t been retroed since 2006.
