Album Artwork for Kanye West - 808's and Heartbreak

The reviews for this album have been thumbs up and down. I have nothing but respect for those who can take a walk away from the normal and challenge themselves to do something different. Regardless to how you feel about the Voicebox thingy that seems to be Mr. West's instrument of choice for this album, you can't deny the edgyness and heart that he exposes. One thing no one can say about this new album is that Kanye is slacking on the artwork. He started hooking up with big name artist on the "Graduation" album and now again on "808's and Heartbreak" Kanye has chosen Brooklyn based artist Kaws to design a very limited album cover and insert booklet. For those who don't know "808's and Heartbreak" are due out Tuesday November 24, 2008. Check it out and let us know what you think.
