One Year Later: Did Watch The Throne Really Change The Game?
Fancy, spancy album artwork.
When Jay-Z and Kanye West released the cover art for their joint album, it looked more like a piece of art than a compact disc. Always a stickler for details, West’s influence on the visual aspects of the album were apparent for this “luxury rap” album. Since then, artists like The-Dream, Lil B, Hit-Boy, the G.O.O.D. Music crew, and even Nike has created album covers and projects directly inspired by The Throne’s crisp golden and unmistakable cover.
