This seminal album from Metal Face hip-hop hero came in many different versions : a brand new re-issue boxset on Stones Throw records, but also a metalbox, and even a diner box!
Beyond the various collector items, the illustration of the cover of the re-issue box set has its own charm: a neat idea to express the incisive style of the artist, done simply but with more subtlety than the usual comic-inspired stuff from MF Doom. It has been drawn by the American illustrator/artist Jason Jagel, while the art direction is from Jeff Jank. It balances the strange style of this box content : while the 7 inch picture disc is ok, what to say about a 150-piece puzzle ?!
