Id honestly cut the photo. I like the Nintendo font for nintendope tho thats cool.  I think you should do it like Twiztid does and create a similar but different Warlock font for each release, that'd be dope as well.

Scale back your logo and title they seriously overpower the artwork. Drop the album title to the bottom and slide it to the right. The art should be primary and draw the eye toward the center, you have it more like a background for your text. Quick fix.

Option 2: Scrap what you have and start over. Make your cover resemble a Nintendo cartridge. Very distinct and iconic format. The label of the game would have an 8 bit rendering of yourself jumping like Mario or whatever, with "The Warlock" as the game title and "Spitendope DLC" in the Nintendo logo spot. Done and done.

I'm approaching it from the viewpoint of a piece of art. The graphic design of the piece is unappealing and should be changed. I understand if my suggestions do not represent your vision, I respect that. I just advise you to take someone's advice and change something. I do put the odds of any changes at 10:1, because I personally think this is a more about self promotion than getting feedback. I don't know... I've been wrong before I guess.

the main feedback i was lookin for was my face on the cover.. which i deleted from it.. even tho the 2 people i asked outside of this site liked it.. & if it was purely promotion i wouldnt of deleted the cover from the 1st post.. i truly wanted to hear thoughts on it..

 

also i have took advice hence me deleting the pic (which OCJ suggested) & adding somethin different to it.. which i like & am now gonna leave as is.. thanks for taking the time to share your opinion on it tho fam..

I think this does look better.

 

Not sure why it has become a trend for people to put their picture on all of their covers. There is so much more art that can be done. If you have a homie that can draw have him or her draw up your next cover, shit can turn out dope!

Can you give the gameboy a 180 rotation  so it's right side up or did you intentionally have it that way? It doesn't matter though.

This is actually a dope cover, which I wasn't expecting when I clicked on it. I love the old Nintendo and anything that is a homage to it is definitely cool as fuck to me. Think "Super Brooklyn." I would also turn the gameboy right side up, or drop it completely. Gameboy really wasn't nearly as good, shit sucked actually. But the seal of approval is definetly dope, and it definitely looks like a Nintendo game box used to. 

 

Now, for the inevitable. Are you really putting out another album? Jesus Christ warlock, you must have more albums than 2pac by now. Shit. You already know how I felt about your past efforts so I won't rehash them here, but you making another album is equivalent to someone who can't even make toast trying to be a chef because he enjoys preparing food, even though no one enjoys eating it. It's a waste of time and resources, a shame really. I will listen as always and maybe you'll even surprise me and make me eat my words, but I severely doubt it. That would be like the aforementioned chef fucking up hot pockets one day and nailing a perfectly seasoned medium rare steak dinner and baked alaska the next. Sure, you could make a dope album. Aliens could land on my roof tonight too and challenge me to a game of jenga but it's unlikely though, all i'm saying. Financial aid is available to students who qualify at most institutions dedicated to furthering your education, you really should look into it. Anyways, dope cover!!!

 

Any Nintendo/video game beats on this joint? If not, cover is a little misleading. Anything packaged like a video game should have something like that on there, just my opinion. Game Over 1 and 2 already schooled the fuck out of that theme and idea but they didn't sample everything, not even close. Give those albums a listen sometime.

the red gameboy is a personal reference cuz i owned one when i was a kid.. thanks for the props on the cover tho that was surprising haha.. & yes every single song on the album is about a different game & samples music from the game im talkin about on it.. except for the intro which samples a game but i didnt rap about it.. i just introduced the album.. as far as nintendo as of right now 10 of the 15 songs were available on that platform.. i might cut a few tho.. we'll see.. thanks for showin interest hopefully i can get you to dig at least one song haha
