It’s always been a dream of mine to design a music artist’s album art. So after listening to the Kanan Tape
, I got an idea for a spec project. Around that time, I was also listening to The 50th Law by Robert Greene. From this semi-autobiographical peek into the bleakness of 50’s life before he was famous, I began to get an image of this cover in my head. I started sketching the idea and a year later got around to creating this layout in Cinema4D and Photoshop. I wanted to visually infuse his drug trade hustling days with the nine bullets he was riddled with back then and produce something that conveyed strength at the same time — I felt that this was a fitting cover for his next major release, whenever it may come. I did two versions with and without shells.
