Now look at The Left's album cover

http://bloggerhouse.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/The-Left-Gas-Mask.jpg

This is not about their music, Gas Mask is undoubtedly a dope album and imo one of the standouts of 2010, but the first time I saw the cover I couldn't help but wonder if this was straight up biting or just a coincidence.

What do you guys think?

yea i noticed that. they did name their album "gas mask", so I guess that had to be the theme. Maybe they did tho. but wats even weirder is this

This mixtape or whatever came out i think like a week or two after "gas mask." apparently this dude lefty is from some group called the bash bros and has been out a lot longer than the left, but i was wondering if he bit off of their cover. but shit, they may have gotten their name from him if he goes by the l.e.f.t.

EDIT: i didn't pay attention to that street platoon but shit they might have bit off the psycho realm

You know what?....now that you brought up that mixtape cover, it makes it seem even more suspect.

I don't think its a bite, Psycho Realm obviously had the idea first but I doubt its an intentional bite. Its a real photo

Not that anyone cares, but some info on that pic

Viktor Bulla's Pioneers in Defense Drill, Leningrad (1937)

Bulla's photograph of hundreds of children wearing gas masks was not meant to be ghoulish, a commentary on war or lost innocence, but rather exemplified a reason for pride--the country was blessed with well-trained, well-equipped and obviously courageous young fighters.

^ thanks for that info MaskedAvenger, i was wondering if the picture was real or staged. shit looks eerie as fucking hell though, like a lot of WWII pictures.

I doubt an unknown group like the left could've gotten that many people so it was either that or photoshop.

Im aware that it's a real photo, but it isn't the only pic thats a bit suspect, if you include this one http://cdn.2dopeboyz.com/m.php/2010/11/20101116-LEFTY.jpg
Maybe it is justified to call it biting.

i think its a DEFINITE bite...

gas mask = psycho realm

in fact, theres nothin original about the group... at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

apollo brown got some dope beats, but his sample selection is pitiful...

i think ive heard every sample he used on the left.... flipped better!!!!!!!!!!!!

inspiration excuse is weak...

theres a difference between being inspired and straight lifting concepts/ideas...

id like to see what sick jacken had to say about it, if he doesnt feel any particular way about it, i guess its a non isssue....

but CMON SON!!!!!!

biting imagery, mediocre emceeing, PLAYED samples...

nothin special about the GAS MASK album at all... IMO!!!!!!!!!!!!

if a group dropped...

with KUNG FU samples all over the place...

im callin that a BITE...

not wu tang inspired....

if a nigga starts spinning stories, with an eye patch, and jewels...

im calling that a BITE...

not slick rick inspired....

they arent an original group, remedial emceeing...

PLAYED samples... thatve been flipped over and over again...

the underground heads are lookin far and wide for somethin new that shocks the system...

this album isnt it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

and yeah, GAS MASKS is and always have been... PSYCHO REALM staple imagery...

they built a movement behind the concept!!!!!!!!!!!!

i know BITINGs no big deal these days...

kids dont care...

again, ill let sick jacken clear it up...

i think its corny personally!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

whatever you call it... is your business!!!!!!!!!!!!!
