In addition to delivering a musical masterpiece, Jay-Z and Kanye West created a visual marvel with the high-end packaging for Watch the Throne. Fans who purchased the digital album also received the booklet featuring artwork by Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci, who served as the album’s creative director.
The rap powerhouses unleash their animal instincts in two particular photos, transforming into wild beasts with quills, scars, and a set of teeth that could do some serious damage.
If you’d rather hold a piece of hip-hop history, physical copies of the CD arrive in stores Friday. The deluxe edition, boasting Tisci’s embossed patterns, will be available exclusively at Best Buy from August 12 – August 22.
