Kanye West’s Album Cover BANNED In The U.S.


 

The Original Cover Art for "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy"

 

For reasons unknown to me, (or to Kanye West, apparently) his album cover for ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy‘ was banned yesterday.  Kanye’s twitter has been atwit with tweets about the subject all day long.  (I told you I could used the word “Atwit” in a sentence Chris, you owe me $100).  Maybe because it’s a black man and a white woman, in which case I may be in trouble, but who knows.  Hopefully details about the reasons behind the ban will come out soon, but lets see how long it takes his people to come up with a new cover, and how dope the second draft will be.
