2 Chainz explains that Kanye West was directly responsible for some of the photoshop work that went into his DONDA-designed "B.O.A.T.S. 2: Me Time" cover.
Kanye West has been working with the DONDA design team for some time now, but it's never been clear how involved he was in the artwork the company has produced. In an interview with Power 106, 2 Chainz revealed that Kanye definitely had a significant hand in his DONDA-designed album cover.
“People won’t believe how much thought goes into this stuff…Working with DONDA was good for the mind anyway,” said Tity. “A bunch of guys, young guys, with all these crazy ideas and crazy resources getting pulled from different areas."
The GOOD rapper shared some insight on Yeezy's role in designing the artwork for B.O.A.T.S. II. "Actually, this cover right here, and I don’t even know if 'Ye wants me to say it, but he actually…photoshopped. Like he did something." he said. "I didn’t know you could erase on the computer. This computer eraser. Move some stuff over. So, I was like ‘Man, you slick a geek. I didn’t know you was that smart.’”
Tity 2 Necklace then explained why he chose to feature a Cuban Link style chain in his artwork. “The Cuban links, they mean—they’re very symbolic in Hip Hop period,” he said. “Raekwon and Ghost had Only Built 4 Cuban Linx and it meant a couple of things as far as how tight the chain was and how tight the link was with the Cuban’s when you was dealing with the work and the trap and all of that. So, a couple of symbols that just says a lot of things.”
