  2. Sneaky Pete|

    my album art is bananas

  3. yuhhh,,, but I wrote ” even if they know story about uncles (from Cartoon and Cereal )” .,,,

    The covers for Oh No and Teen Daze are remarkably ugly, but I agree with the rest

  5. I didn’t get it at first, but it really made sense when Kendrick explained it and when I heard it, Maybe everyone needed an explanation and a listen before understanding and hopefully liking the art.

  6. Not me, I thought shit was great from the jump

  7. strange thing. Before GKMC release everybody laugh how this cover is wack , even if they know story about uncles (from Cartoon and Cereal ) – now in top of the best covers. strange thing.

  8. I know a design credit was given to Invisible Creature for “Good Kid, MAAD City”, but I’m sure Kendrick made all the art direction decisions.
