I feel like being a bit critical of this cover. The typography is a little off at the bottom. Don't tell me I'm nitpicking; every other designer would tell you that the text at the bottom isn't the best example of typography. IMO, should've looked more like this:

Put the text as projected lights on the lockers and floor, would've looked better artistically. But I know y'all gonna hate on that opinion, so whatever.
yep, right on..

How is it corny, though? It's just re-arranging the text to mould it better with the photograph itself

The way they positioned the album's title, you can tell the 'Cole World' and 'Sideline Story' text had negative space, that's why they put the pointless red rectangle to negate the empty space beside the "Cole World" text. You see that?

A designer would fix the problem properly, not with a placeholder solution and add a red rectangle to remedy alignment issues.

tl;dr version: nananananana lalalalala Left Hook idgaf stop talking

A subtle placement of a Cross on an album cover for an artist signed by Jay-Z.

Well looking at the tracklist before from the credits, I doubt it'll be a CLASSIC like Hov is piping it up to be. Everybody says their Albums are CLASSIC, when they turn out Average, OKAY, a.ss, or etc! We'll see

Section 80 had to grow on me thought it was decent now i think it's great...not all albums you instantly like when you first hear it...back in the day everyone called It Was Written a big disappointment now you got people arguing if it is better than illmatic

Are you serious? The best albums are the ones that organically grow. You have to like it at first, but if it gets better after each listen, that's a testament to the longevity and construct of the songs.

On the contrary, songs that are instant "yep, love the beat, love the hook" usually get the least plays after a while.

That would be a sick a.ss cover if it was squared off and everything with a red border. If not a cover then a limited edition poster.

Back cover he should have his back turned away, walking towards the door/court, IMO.
