Kanye West Floats Idea Of Using Jan Adams’ Photo For Album Cover

Posted by

Kanye West hasn’t back down from his Twitter rampage. After dropping two new singles —  the troll-fastic “Lift Yourself” and “Ye Vs. The People” with T.I. — Kanye has returned with ideas for his solo album’s cover art.

On Saturday (April 28), Ye shared a text exchange with someone named Wes — presumed to be artist and longtime collaborator Wes Lang — that included a photo of plastic surgeon Jan Adams. Adams performed an elective cosmetic surgery on Ye’s mother Donda West that led to her 2007 death.

“This is my album cover,” he wrote. “This is plastic surgeon Jan Adams. The person who performed my moms final surgery. Do you have any title ideas? I want to forgive and stop hating.”

The conversation led to a revelation about love and forgiveness.

“I think it’s exactly what you should use,” Wes continued. “Love love love love. I’m so tired of saying and thinking the word hate. It’s wild man. After the night I came by your house and talked I’ve been forgetting and forgiving and only thinking about loving people. That was an important talk for me.”

Kanye replied, “I love you bro. I love Gabe … I love the world. I’m gonna cross out my Fuck The World tattoo and put Love The World.” In fact, a few hours later, he did.

Whether Yeezy is serious about using Adams’ photo for the cover art remains to be seen but the follow-up to 2016’s The Life Of Pablo is expected to arrive on June 1.

Ye’s return to Twitter hasn’t been all weird, esoteric and pro-Trump tweets. Ye also announced several impending release dates for upcoming projects, including Pusha T’s King Pusha on May 25, Ye’s collaborative project with Kid Cudi, Kids See Ghost, on June 8 and Nas’ album on June 15.
