It seems that Lupe Fiasco isn’t too happy with the cover art for Kendrick Lamar & SZA’s new song “All The Stars.” Early Friday morning, Fiasco took to Twitter to explain how disappointed he was that their cover art was similar to that of his upcoming album.
According to Uproxx, the Grammy-winning Chicago rapper posted a side-by-side comparison of the cover art for “All the Stars” and the cover art for his upcoming project Drogas Wave. Apparently the similarities were very obvious.
“Even I admit this is a little too close for comfort…damn now I guess I need a new album cover,” he wrote in a now-deleted tweet. He also tweeted, “no matter how far you go…you will reflect me,” which seems like a shot towards Kendrick for borrowing the inspiration for his original Untitled album cover from Lupe’s Food And Liquor II cover, which is also a solid black design.
Fiasco also reminded everyone he did the “backwards album” concept with Tetsuo & Youth way before Kendrick did it with Damn.
