I don’t care what anyone says, Funko Pops still manage to impress me.
Yeah, one could argue that it might be oversaturated. But they never seem to have a bad idea when it comes to figuring out how else they can pay homage to pop culture.
A few of my favorite Funko Pop collections include Funko Pop Rides and Funko Pop Movie Scenes. But now, I must add Funko Pop Albums to the list!
They take an album cover, whether it’s of the artist or a character on the album, and give it the Funko touch. They are displayed in a 10-inch case with the actual album cover in the background and the Pop.
The first Funko Pop Album ever was ‘Ready to Die’ by rap legend Notorious B.I.G. The cover features a baby sitting in a diaper and a plain white background.
At the time when this album dropped, fans speculated that the baby could’ve been Baby Biggie or maybe his daughter.
No one knew who it was up until 2011. New York Daily News confirmed that it was a baby model named Keith Yearwood. So not only was this kid the face of over 4 million albums sold, but now he’s a Funko Pop too!
Add that sh*t to his resume.
Announced in December, Funko announced that four new Pop Albums would be released.
Lil Wayne- Tha Carter III
