Drake Reveals ‘Nothing Was the Same’ Artwork

With its due date pushed back a week — it’ll now arrive on Sept. 24 instead of Sept. 17 — Drake has revealed the, erm, choice artwork for his upcoming ‘Nothing Was the Same’ album.

The two covers — one standard edition, one deluxe edition — find photorealistic profiles of baby Drake and adult Drake staring at each other to a cloudy, blue sky back drop. Corny, right? Right. But while his latest artwork might be subject to more slander than his last one, the covers lowkey place Drake in some prestigious company.

Not only will the baby theme earn ‘NWTS’ instant comparisons with Nas‘ ‘Illmatic,’ Biggie‘s ‘Ready to Die’ and Lil Wayne‘s ‘Tha Carter III’ — three undisputed classics — the covers were created by Kadir Nelson, the guy behind Michael Jackson‘s 2010 posthumous album cover, ‘Michael.’ Looks like the joke’s on us, folks.

Standard Edition:

OVO Sound/YMCMB/Republic

Deluxe Edition:

OVO Sound/YMCMB/Republic

Le Meme did us all the Photoshop favor of flipping the faces on the covers. Would you like a meme?
