    @BEYONCE VS. WORLD
    Big fan of Kanye’s, but sorry, not loving the cover that much, not as good as Graduation or Touch the Sky – maybe I’m just not into that kind of painting style, sorry.

    Right along with Jay Z, Beyonce and Rihanna!

    Chris Brown has nothing to do with the four.

    I feel like Art wise Kanye can do no wrong. Atleast he doesnt try to pass ‘S***’ off as Art like someone I know (See my Avater). I think the song is just lukeworm/OK though, just another Kanye song really. It sounds like a another recycled version of “cant tell me nothing”. He usually changes his style up more drastically but It doesnt seem like he’s doing it this go around.

    @ DumbOfficial

    I knew it would be something evil before I clicked. I mean, without knowing the artists intended meaning of images these days, they are CLEARLY not of God.

    I’ve heard the song, which sucks, but where does it give you a reason to have everything so “sick” and “dark”?

    We have become too desensitized to foolishness!

    @Knuck

    Actually… what you see from this cover is more of a reflection of yourself than the artist. That’s the great thing about art in all facets — be it paintings, poems, songs, whatever. Different people see different things. So if you’re seeing something “unholy” in a depiction of a king’s head with a knife in it (it speaks to me more about elitism, and the death of that versus something ‘evil’), you should probably sit down with yourself and question why you see evilness in all of the things industry related. Most people who see evil all over, go and look for it. Not trying to be mean, just saying.

    Love it.

  18. EXPOSED July 1, 2010

    FLOP!!!!!!! AS USUAL KANYE PRODUCES SUICIDAL MESSAGES IN HIS COVER ART. JUST GET IT OVER ALREADY… UR MAMA IS WAITING. *KANYE SHRUG*

  19. Last Boy on Earth July 1, 2010

    I love it

    @ Truth Serum –

    No, you need to sit down with yourself and determine who gave you this sense of “enlightenment” that you are portraying.

    We know everyone sees things differently; serial killers sometimes see what they are doing as for the greater good of society. It doesn’t make it right or sound judgment.

    You have regurgitated a lot of nothingness.

  21. ALLAN July 1, 2010

    Wow, now that’s a statement! lol

  22. BeysBetter July 1, 2010

    SICK i love it!

  23. Misty July 1, 2010

    Good, so he’s KILLING his ego! Yass Mr. West do that!

  24. ~TeAM WeeZY~ July 2, 2010

    This is HOT! I absolutely LOVE this song and it’s my favorite song right now! This cover is PERFECT!

    And if you idiots actually listened to lyrics to the song, you would realize how this cover relates to the song. The chorus is: “No one man should have all that POWER!” Hence the King, who’s powerful, has a sword through his head. He also says at the end: “This’ll be a beautiful death” meaning when he dies, the power will disappear which is the beauty. and “They told me, I was the abomination of Obama’s nation” and “Do you have the power to let power go?” I mean listen to song’s LYRICS people and you would see how this art is parallel to the lyrics! This is TRUE art, and it conveys exactly what it is meant to convey.

    Co-sign Team Weezy, he put it best. Great song, ‘Ye

  26. kay yay August 13, 2010

    If you really listen he say”looking down at my jesus piece thinking no one one man should have all that power.theIR trying to kill the image of jesus it may be the one they call the black jesus of the 5 percenters.(NOT THE PEGEANISM JESUS WHICH IS ALL HOROSCOPES MEANING….JESUS AND 12 DICIPLES=THE SUN AND 12 MONTHS) notice the sword is a cross.notice that kanye wore the crown of thorns on a rolling stone cover,Its a metaphor an on going double meaning,but if your dumb enough like the average justin bieber or gucci mane fan then you would comment on if you like it or not not realizing that this puppet,the all black era,all black hennesy,all black remy,BLACK cognac,jay-z,all black everything,….ALL BLACK GULF OF MEXICO DUE TO OIL ,ALL BLACK PACIFIC DUE TO CHINA OILSPILL, IS AN INDICATION THAT THE END IS CLOSER THAN YOU THINK.AND GOD SAID THEY WOULD TURN ON HIM IN THE END.

    As much as i like the song, I really dont understand what hes trying to say with the cover. He seems to always be saying something without saying it. I havent quite figured out what hes trying to do but soon i will.
