It looks to be in a bathroom or some room.. and looks like someone did it graffi style or painted it?

Nisha said...

Wow so that's how the cover for TML started? It still looks kinda cool lol

the album cover itself is stylized like graffiti, so I'm guessing this is actual graffiti of it. the hallmark of celebrity, in my opinion.

it's a spray paint stencil... they used the same stencil twice, first for the red, second for the black...

Gigi said...

That's so hot! <3 the cover! It's nice to see the way it really started! Thanks for sharing Oliver! :)

Btw, if u can, can u thank Drake for bringing me up on stage in Philly on 6/16/10. Ask him if he read my letter too please, I would really appreciate that! Thanks! :D

can you come to UMD in college parkk pleaseeee <3 and i love you!

Henock said...

Speaking on the title, Drake says process with stress on the "pro" instead of the other way, which is pronounced "prah-cess". Just wanted to point that out. No hate lol it's cooler the way Drake says it anyways.

1. Best I Ever Had Video
2. Thanks me Later Artwork

@ last comment..AGREED. hated that video... and not a fan of the cover... i like how so far gone as an album and a cover and w.e else was more personal which made it feel like real music, real art.. i just went on nahright.com and read the piece about drizzys record sales.. theres some truth to what dude says, i feel like drake is the man, but too much hype about a million fucked him in the long run along with the leak. i wanna hear drake stop being so safe, and stop fuckin with kanye..

@ Henock um obviously you haven't heard anyone from Canada talk besides Drake. That is how they pronounce anything with pro in it. you should hear how they say words like out and about. no matter how much he suppresses his accent some words will remain the same.

Brittney said...

def spray paint stencils for tagging. Coming to a city near you! TO maybe?

Brittney said...

As for the process pronunciation its part of the english canadian accent.

The real question for drake is
About or "Aboot"?

Cause i've heard him say aboot before too lol

Reggie said...

I like it. It goes into how different and creatitve his art is........

Larissa Jennings said...

I really need to meet u,Drake..I'm ur biggest fannnnnn!Love u
PASS US YOUR E-MAIL HAHAHAHA babye

kanJay Chedda said...

dope, but now that i look at just the outline, it kind of reminds of me the michael jordan cologne logo.

Kohkane said...

D,
I think you should get out of young money. Lil wayne is convinced he's the best.. Show his ass.

sell more records than him. Thats it.
Fatality.

lsanchez said...

Everything is a work in progress, and everything starts from the bottom up just like the cover... Drake is an amazing artist because everything comes from the heart and not fabricated. He talks about his life and people around him, he's not worried about record sales or the fame, he remains loyal to himself and is trying to accomplish greatness...

Tara McGuinness said...

Aww! This is tight to see how the album cover came about.

40,

You are truly inspiring. Seeing all the hard work you've done into putting Drake where he is today makes me feel anything is possible if you just hustle. And Drake, that documentary made me love you even more! Come back to Atlanta and make up for that performance :)

Btw, I waited for TML to come out before I listened to it and ignored all the leaks. I'm enjoying every penny I spent!

B-MAC said...

Yo Drizzy, you know I love your music man and I support ATF to the fullest, we balled out in Hartford @HotJam you were like I said b4 the show "LBJ droppin 100" but maaaaaan but you gotta keep it real and not go 3rd person on your MTV documentary, say "I" plz not "Drake" we know you are Drake and you are on your way to greatness, but stay humble dude, you know one album don't make legend and we know you're not "really THIS COLD," so keep killin em and I'll see you in Montreal, NFL = not for long, keep workin those 2-a-days 'n keep them hoes at bay!

Im a Bahamian and I just finished watching "Better Than Good Enough" on MTV and I'm really loving it. I appreciate the fact that Drake puts his heart and soul into his music and performances. It's very intimate and I'm really feeling it.
And Drake if u read this, you are a great artist with a wonderful future. I wish you and your team all the best and I send my love.

Great Album and Im looking forward to seeing what else you have to offer as an artist!!! All the best!!!
