xXSmack|Cuts - The Name Is TagXx


So the story behind this - Because of my work with Cold Men Young, I was approached by another Detroit mic ripper Nametag to do the artwork for his debut album The Name Is Tag. The music was dope so of course I obliged. Unfortunately in the end of it, the style wasn't what he wanted for a first album, which I understand. It's your debut album and you want people to witness something recognizable to establish a brand. So maybe next album you might see a Smack! x Nametag collabo. Keep the fingers cross.

Also here's his first single featuring Ro Spit! "Celebrate"

Musiq Soulchild - Feel The Real

Having been working with R&B artist Musiq Soulchild for almost two years now on his side projects (The Husel/Pwonda Love, and his top secret animation project), I was given the task to do the art and design for his eight studio album Feel The Real. The direction he wanted to go in for the album was dealing with the idea of emojis and wanted specific ones designed for each of the 24 songs on the double disc album. He also wanted the look of the design to feel like a text message but also still incorporated the denim feel continuing from his previous album Life On Earth. So here's a look at the design of the album booklet along with the 24 emojis as well.







Feel The Real is available on iTunes and in Best Buy and Target now!
