Album Cover of the Month: Kanye West "808s And Heartbreak"

Say what you will about Kanye but this cover is genius. I like that he pushes the boundaries of "rap" music. Not only is the album going to be mostly "sing-song" (ie: Andre 3000's "The Love Below"), but the cover goes against all the cliche Rap/Hip-Hop cover art elements. No large type treatment. No picture of the artist. Nothing gawdy.

Let's hope the album is as good as the cover. LOVE the deflated balloon...
Check the TV spot below:

THIS JUST IN: There will be a Special "Kaws" Edition of the album cover:
