25 Dope Fan-Made Album Covers Imitating Kanye West’s ‘T.L.O.P.’
Kanye West kept plans for his new album, The Life of Pablo, under wraps for years, leaving fans yearning for a new project. The LP, which dropped Thursday (Feb. 11), was first heard in its entirety during 'Ye's Yeezy Season 3 fashion show. The rapper's seventh studio release features Chance The Rapper, Post Malone, Vic Mensa, Desiigner and more.
Kanye built anticipation for this album like no other in his career. He even changed the title for his LP four times (first So Help Me God, then SWISH followed by Waves and T.L.O.P.) leaving his fans guessing up until the last minute. When he finally did drop the cover art on Twitter, 'Ye debuted a peach-colored background with the album title repeatedly typed in black, sometimes overlapping. The bottom corner of the album features an old family photo of the rapper, which has been a common theme throughout 'Ye's SoundCloud releases leading up to the album. The album cover was designed by Belgian artist Peter De Potter and circulated quickly around all social channels.
So far, the album art has been met with mixed reception. Some of the Internet's savviest got right to work making their own versions of the cover and featuring images of other famous Pablos like painter Pablo Picasso and drug lord Pablo Escobar. The Photoshop jobs on these are pretty dope. Still, for those fans who are less artistically inclined and didn't like the cover art, or just wanted to have a little fun, a cover-generating website has popped up where Yeezy stans can upload their own image and change the wording.
