  • IamRealTalk ( Rick Ross’ GFID 738K Officially PLATINUM Status – Jeezy only at 700k lol ) – CRUEL SUMMER will NOT outsell SELF MADE VOL. II -

    THAT NIGGA STILL GOT THE SAME HEAD !

    OUTSIDE OF ROSS, KENDRICK IS THE ONLY NIGGA THAT I SEE CARRYING THE TORCH ( not the mmg weed carrier ) FOR REAL HIP HOP IN THE FUTURE

    This already has the makings of a classic. And the cover only makes it feel more like it.

    Dope.

  • Mezz

    @Dashing

  • Regular Guy

    fuckin’ comments on album covers are pointless. y’all are so hypocritical.

  • Beezy

    I see the dude holdin k dot holding up the Crip sign

  • Angelo

    Dope! That’s very Compton, Watts, South Central early to mid 80′s…His popz holding him look like he went to the Skate Depot on Rosecrans, HA!

  • Royalty of this shyt!

  • SGB

    ^^^so an album automatically is a classic b/c of a cover???

  • Word

    Now THATS a dope cover. Retro.

  • LDN12

    It gonna be classic if section 80 was jst a taster foreal

  • M.T

    meh. i was hoping the cover would be cooler but i guess this will do.

  • the ripper

    @ Goldenboy…stop fucking hating!!! The cover reflects his fu&^*&^ life!!! Good Kid, Mad City will be on heavy rotation. Goldenboy, if you never been to Compton u would never know what the picture represent. Trust me, if u r a black male and live past 21 years of age in Compton, then u graduated from the streets. I cannot wait for this shit drop.

  • LIQUORSTOREMAN

    THE REAL QUESTION IS……….ARE ANY OF THE BROTHERS ON THE COVER STILL ALIVE?

    i’m pretty sure those are his uncles on the cover, some of them are in jail, not sure if any are dead. and the deluxe cover is his parents van that he used to drive to the studio.
