…An Album By Its Cover


This is another segment on my blog covering album artwork and their allusions and meanings. Today’s post is about the controversial rapper Lil B‘s latest album cover for “I’m Gay (I’m Happy).”

The artist, Uncle Grumpy, based his artwork for the album off of Marvin Gaye’s 1970 album, “I Want You.”

Called the “Sugar Shack” painting, this was by the artist Ernie Barnes, who did the paintings for the 1970s TV sitcom, “Good Times.”
