His favorite mixtape covers:

Drama’s early Gangsta Grillz mixtape covers were dope and the artist behind those is this kid Rob Petrozzo. I feel like the covers he made for Drama were better than the official album art of the featured artist they were promoting. I felt like the Trap or Die covers were better than Jeezy’s album covers. I felt like they took the mixtape aesthetic to a whole new level.

Those would be my top ones.
