This album has a lot of resonance for me as it describes Kanye’s journey from dropping out of college, and it was released as I was dropping out of college/uni. However, the artwork is great. It apes the College visual style, with Harvard-like red background, the gilded, ornate frame, and then the solemn mascot on a bench. It’s great imagery.
