Lots and lots and lots of mixtapes were released this year. Some were good, some were bad, and some were redirected to our “Trash” almost immediately after we unzipped them. But, our favorite part about mixtapes is always the covers.

So, as we edge closer to the end of the year, we decided to celebrate this ridiculousness by putting together a list of The 25 Most Ridiculous Mixtape Covers of 2012. From Lil Wayne to Rick Ross, there were certainly plenty of ridiculous mixtape covers to go around this year. But, these were our favorites.
