    This is an extreme case of Kanye West trying to hard to be Kanye West.

    Nobody gives a shit about this album cover.

    This dude is the epitome of commercialism in HipHop yet complains about it.

    Get yo old Christian Dior Denim flowing ass outta here Kanye. Make some better songs, fuck your album cover.

    Hypocritical ass nigga.

  • Ronnie-Moe

    What kinda Kan-yiggity is this?

    Stop putting out bullshit, and calling it art.

    There ain’t nothing artistic about this shit.

    Where’s the music, nigga?

  • thatdude

    I find it funny, remember hes the dude who admits he loves to watch porn, and loves white bitches. Why not show you what his fantasy is? Sex Tape of him and some white bitches.. I feel ya Ye, pass some my way, and we goodie.

    I like it ye is pushing the bar with this …. better than half these niggas albums with just a picture of them

  • sideshowRaheem

    The very fact that people are this mad and want to debate the album cover means it worked….

    Not my favorite George Condo painting and Kanye is crazy if he ever thought this shit was gonna go on the shelves at Walmart…

  • Android

    l0l wtf son? Kanye? Anyway @RC hws Kanye the epitome of commercialism in hiphop? I hate these underground losers acting like that shit isnt hypocritical itself. Mad coz u hav 0 mainstream appeal.

  • Ronnie-Moe

    I really don’t care what the cover looks like. I just wanna hear the music anyway. But why is he doing shit like this? For Shock Value? Where’s the mascot he used to have on the cover?

  • teejay

    When I put it on my ipod I’m gunna use that cover.

  • Shawn

    Stupid. And truth be told… Nobody gives a fuck about album artwork.
    Looking for attention like the narcissist he his.
    And maybe Kanye doesn’t recognize the racial stereotypes.. Black Man with a monsterish grin as he sleeps with a White Women… He knew this wasn’t going anywhere.
    One day his need to be spoken of with silly attempts for attention will outshine music. Not now.. But real soon. This acts getting tired.

  • Jordan

    Thank G-d the Ohio Players dropped albums when they did.

  • jam jizz

    White girl got ass tho lol

  • Post no billz

    Here come the suits again ruining things for the artist and their fans.. Fuck em…

  • Word

    @ronnie-moe

    EXACTLY! what happened to Dropout Bear? Graduation was his best album cover. 808s was ass and so is this. But im sure the album is gonna be far from ass…bet. Imma cop the album even of the cover is ass…I guess.

  • BIG CHUMP

    @word cosign

  • Fuck Ya Life

    This looks like it should be the first ever interracial porn cover. Despite that I could give a fuck what the cover looks like I just want the music.

  • Shawn

    @ Post No Billz

    Nobody has problems when they get checks from the suits..

    You don’t want to be in a corporate structure.. Cool. Sign to Koch and have faith in your product for back paper and do your promo run on the Eastern Seaboard in 15pass with no navigation.
    You don’t get everything you want. And they DONT fuck with ability to him, so he can’t fuck with the ability to, literally, sell this product at retail.

  • Belize

    I wish dat were Dropout Bear was on dat cover. This cover’s amusing, but honestly, picture THAT in your CD collection. Nothin wrong with it, just rejected from society. Imo it’s funny and well…original. Who else but Kanye would put THAT as their album cover?
    Hope Marshall’s having a knockout Birthday celebration. :D

  • Truth

    CONTROVERSY SELLS, That’s not the real cover and never was, they are keeping Kanye’s name in the public eye and on blogs and media sites so ppl will talk about him. Y’all are so gullable…SMH

  • Certifiedone

    Kanye West made claims that Kanye is an “artist” of sorts, yet Kanye West cant come up with a creative album cover/title for Kanye’s new up and coming album. Kanye West should let Kanye’s fans decide what the album cover should be. I’m sure this album will be renamed, yet again.
    Do your thing Kanye, but mannnn don’t be stupid about it.

  • Post no billz

    @shawn.. The artists vision shouldnt be comprimised and those suits im talking about ruined one of the best hip hop labels ever..so fuck the suits..

  • Truth

    Kanye knows how to get your attention, expect to see the DropOut Bear (i hope)

  • Boggz

    Kayne West is half way between genius and retard. Maybe a little on the retard side.

  • Shawn

    Cosign Truth… No way he thought this was legit cover

  • http://twitter.com/youngshay112 Shannon

    Meh. He knew damn well it would be, which is why we’re seeing it now. I love him, I like the GOOD Fridays stuff. I was never checking for a “statement cover” that’s in the same vein as LeBron slinging that model around on that Vogue cover a while back.

  • Ronnie-Moe

    Aye, Belize, GTFOH nigga. Yes it’s Marshall’s birthday. We know that. Now please, get outta here nigga.

  • http://yodonbleekraps.wordpress.com Don Bleek

    All I can say is wow. Maybe it’s a good idea that Def Jam isn’t allowing Kanye to use this particular cover as his album cover. I think if Kanye was able to kept this as his album cover, it will affect his first week sells.

    Lyrically, Kanye is in a class all by himself. Pusha T and Cyhi the Prynce went hard too.

    “Everything has become so commercialized Now”

    LOL, Kanye West is the Epitome of a commercial artist

    Whats Next, Limp Bizkit saying “There’s way too much of this damn Rock Rap shit goin on”

    Shut the Fuck up kanye, every time you open your mouth you sound like an idiot, him and DMX should be on a Life-time “Dont Speak unless your rapping” timeout

    i like kanyes artistic side, and i do like this cover, but I think Kanye still has time to come up with something better. Either way I am definitely still looking forward to this album.

  • Haters are annoying–> Android, Mac Weasel, Lucas and others

  • breeezyyy

  • http://facebook.com/zarioonline mistah_zee

    his cover will have him depicted as god or the devil.

    and that cover above sucks and im a huge kanye stan.

  • http://www.chicagoisforhaters.com Chicago Is For Haters

    I’m a dan! of Kanye and I gotta say, it’s too fucking simple. Yeah, it stays true to his George Condo- assisted theme, and knowing the snowbunny breezy that he was pimpin’ to the media I would say it stays true to the name of the album as well. It’s still a poor testament to his artistic bend and would thin out his possible market considering there’s not many hardware retailers other than the big Wall. I think he’s just making a statement with it, which is cool but hopefully doesn’t place it to the corners of obscurity like 808s. Funny shit, though.

  • CaniBlog?

    I’m a big ye fan but I’m not really feeling the cover. Regardless back in 08 when he put out that graduation album somw niggas wasent feeling that cover either think about it no hip hop cover in 08 was looking like that with all those crazy colors so I’m expecting this next cover to be a little to much for premature adults haha who will buy into a couple years later.

    just my thoughts nothing more.

  • jacob

    Who cares about how dope an album cover is (this one isnt btw) when the musics trash? It reminds me of the saying “you can put makeup on a pig but its still a pig”.

    Like a few have said, this is mearly for attention and heat, i mean look at it, shit looks like its been lifted out of your school book.

  • ym

    maybe there isnt any info on it. but the underground cares…RIP Eyedea!!

    who care about the cover getting banned, if he really want use it, he just put it on the inside…

  • B. Digital

    Just have a naked white girl on the cover and put parental stickers on her titties and cooch. lol

  • B. Digital

    George Condo is a good artist but this album cover is trash b.

  • JERZZZ

    Did this asshat nigga really think that shit was gonna fly? What a fuckin clown. And you niggas cosigning anything this fruitcake does minus production are gay.

  • Devil

    DOPE?

    Just because this nigga puts out weird shit Kanye stans automatically call it DOPE? or GENIUS?

    Bunch of dumb motherfuckers.

  • lilrizq

    i think it got banned because it depicts yeezy havin sex with a WHITE(wink wink) girl. if ye had a cover with 2 big booty black chicks in short shorts and yeezy in the middle in his b boy stance and wide eyed mantan steez… that would be more acceptable… RRIIGGHHTT, SMH. freedom of expression is almost out the door thanx to sheep like yall.

  • Flippstarr007
