This past week the most viral rapper out, Sheck Wes, released his debut project titled MUDBOY. The cover art for this album is very interesting. Sheck Wes proclaims himself to be a mudboy,  which under his definition means someone who came from nothing or from a bad situation. In the album cover you see the young rapper covered in mud and sitting in a tube of mud. The cover immediately reminded me of the album cover for Flesh of my Flesh Blood of my Blood, where you see rapper DMX completely covered in blood. What makes the cover even more interesting is the use of depth and space. There are splatters on the foreground and the background which makes viewers feel that Wes is surrounded. Overall it is very jarring imagery for a very jarring album.
