Album Cover: Nas – ‘Life Is Good’

Life Is Good

Nas holds on to a piece of his past on the cover of his new album Life Is Good. The hip-hop veteran is pictured with his ex-wife Kelis’ green wedding dress on his lap on the shocking cover. Kelis left behind the custom-made gown by Matthew Williamson following their divorce in 2010.

Due July 17, Nas’ 10th album features the singles “Nasty,” “The Don,” and “Daughters,” with production from Salaam Remi, Hit-Boy, Swizz Beatz, Da Internz, and more.

What do you think of Nas’ cover artwork? Sound off below.

    Nas needs to give it up already. Kelis don’t want him anymore. It’s time to move on. How pathetic he is.

    @Trillafood., That’s a dumb ass comment son, word up. I bet your mom and dad are split up too. You don’t just let go of someone you marry and have a kid with. That’s probably too deep for you to comprehend.

    Visually, it did not do much for me. It has an interesting story behind it, though. Hopefully the actual music on the album will give me a better understanding of the album cover, which seems kind of contradictng to the album’s title.

    The cover and concept is dope but I dont think some people will get it unless someone explains it to them. Not too many people are familiar with the wedding dress Kelis wore to the point where they’d go “THERE’S KELIS’ WEDDING DRESS!” I initially thought it was his daughters tutu or something, given the new track “Daughters.”

    It’s kind of confusing.

    I remember Kelis saying in an interview she would never say anything negative about Nas. I remember Nas saying he hates that he failed at their relationship (his words, not mine).

    That being said, it would seem he wants to reconcile or he misses her? I don’t see him saying anything bad about her. He always takes the high road.

    i think its a creative way of saying he is good, life is good without her. when i seen it i instantly thought, oh shit is that Kelis dress? LOL….kudos nas. I like how u did that.

    This cover is art in a pure form, many emotions summed up in 4 colours, 3 words, 2 perspectives, 1 pose.
