Album Cover: Jeezy – ‘Seen It All: The Autobiography’

Seen It All

Jeezy stirs up controversy with the cover for his fifth solo album Seen It All: The Autobiography. The Atlanta rapper took to Instagram to reveal the dark artwork, which features the Eye of Providence, which has become a symbol of the Illuminati.

Due September 2, the follow-up to 2011′s TM:103 Hustlerz Ambition features the Jay Z-assisted title track as well as the Future-assisted “No Tears.”

“This is gonna be your bible, this is gonna be your manual,” Jizzle told MTV News. “I’m not gonna tell you that everything gonna be okay, that everything’s gonna be alright, but the moral to the story is never quit, never let up. A win is a win. That’s what this album is about.”

Other tracks include “Me OK,” “Black Eskimo,” and “Enough.”

Nobody's Smiling

Common is putting on for his city with the artwork for his 10th album Nobody’s Smiling. The Chicago rapper spotlights some of Chi-town’s rising rap stars including Lil Herb, King Louie, Dreezy, and Lil Bibby on the multiple covers. Common himself appears on one cover, posing against a black background.

“It means a lot to me,” Dreezy said of her inclusion. “Common was and still is a legend and it just makes me feel like I’m the new face of hip-hop.”

Executive produced by No I.D., Nobody’s Smiling arrives July 22 featuring the Vince Staples-assisted single “Kingdom.”

The concept-driven project was inspired by the tragedies in Chicago. “We came up with this concept Nobody’s Smiling [and it] was really a thought that came about because of all the violence that was going on in Chicago,” said Common of the follow-up to 2011′s The Dreamer/The Believer.

With two weeks to go, Robin Thicke has unveiled the cover and tracklisting for his seventh album Paula. The dark artwork shows the pensive singer with his head down and washed in red, yellow, and green.

The follow-up to last year’s chart-topper Blurred Lines is dedicated to his estranged wife Paula Patton. The couple, who’s been married for nine years and have a four-year-old son together, announced their separation in February, and Thicke has been trying for months to mend their relationship.

All 14 tracks were written and produced by Thicke with titles inspired by his wife including “You’re My Fantasy,” “Forever Love,” and the lead single “Get Her Back.”

“We got a lot to talk about on that subject,” Thicke told Steve Harvey. “I gotta impress her somehow. The truth shall set you free.”
