A few days ago Gunna had announced the official release date of Drip Season 4, the new album of the American rapper. The new chapter of Drip Season will be available from January 7, however, had not yet been unveiled the cover of the album, to think it was no less than Daniel Arsham, author of the artwork.
Many rappers have worked with international artists for the covers of their albums, just think of the recent one by Damien Hirst for Drake or those of and Virgil Abloh and Murakami for Kanye West. Gunna has chosen the unmistakable vision of Daniel Arsham and that neo-archaeological style that in the past has led the artist to collaborate with Dior, adidas, KITH, Pharrell Williams or Ikea, to name but a few.
The cover features elements typical of Arsham’s work. The first is the cement gray color, the second are the subjects, represented as statues just rediscovered from an excavation or carved directly from a piece of rock and minerals. Gunna’s bust is in fact set with blue diamonds, while a Cuban link with the rapper’s name hangs around his neck. We know the release date of the album, not the look of the statue, hidden by a pair of black rectangular glasses.
