‘The best album cover this year?’

UK Rapper Young Thug’s album cover came avalible this August with an interesting image album cover and track name ‘Harambe’ rightly named after the recent killing of a gorilla after saving a baby on May 28, 2016. (More infomation on this here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Killing_of_Harambe)

The album artwork named best of the year by TheHundreds.com (http://thehundreds.com/blog/glp-young-thug-interview-jeffery-cover) is below:

I listen to alot of music of this particular genre, I saw the album artwork and was shocked at how it was shot and used. Studio softly lit straight forward portrait shot of Young Thug in a bazzare dress and hat. White backdrop and a blue fade floor which i can only assume is done in post or finished up in post. The dress also keeps in line with this colour scheme going off on a gradiant from blue to (not fully) white.

The photographer is called: Garfield Larmond, also goes by the name GLP/Who is GLP.
