To be perfectly honest, I thought it'd be a side shot of him sitting on a bench within an outdoors basketball park, with the basketball near him. It'd represent so much more than this.

Outdoors = life
Setting could be Fayetteville, would also imply that his raps are about what he sees.

Basketball = someone dropped it
Cole about to pick it up and get in the game.

Side shot looking into the distance = Dreams big

Should be photographed just before sunset. That would've been dope. At it is, it's alright.

You analyzing too much.

It's not you are going to be taking the album cover and framing it and placing it alongside your mantle.



Getting all sentimental and sh*t...

"I was hoping J.Cole would be playing hop scotch across the sidewalk holding a rose in his hand while twirling in the air to represent freedom".

Your album cover should represent your project. It should also imply and symbolize something to the viewer at the same time. This is an average cover, and I just wished it would've been something different.

I'm not getting sentimental, that's just how one's thought process should naturally be when you're prepping for an album cover or ANY image for that matter. Imagine if no one wanted to "get all sentimental" for advertisements. Your campaign wouldn't do sh*t.

Once again, I think you are over analyzing the situation. This isn't a multi million dollar advertisement campaign being launched on nationally syndicated television shows during prime time hours. I highly doubt the cover art makes a fu*king difference in how his music connects with his fans.

Last but not least, obviously the album cover means something to him and that's what he wants to use...not some album cover designed to increase sales from a campaign perspective.
