Miley Cyrus is apparently ratchet now, and her attempts at twerking seem to suggest she is really trying to mean it.

As we sit back and watch her try to ingratiate herself with the hip-hop community, let's take a moment to think about what could've been if Miley had been around during the '90s and early '00s and discovered rap when some classic albums were released. Here are some beloved hip-hop albums with Miley on the cover courtesy of TheDrop.fm. As unfortunate as her VMA performance was, it could be way, way worse.
