Did something happen to make Pusha T take the photo down?
Before even pressing play, listeners were greeted with the first major Drake revelation, a completely legitimate picture of him dressed in blackface as the cover. The cover caused instant controversy, and forced Drake to make a statement ahead of the diss track that would eventually never come. In a note posted on his Instagram, Drake wrote how the make-up was from his actor days, and was a statement on how black people were being wrongly portrayed in media.
The photo was initially taken off Instagram, citing a violation that "infringes or otherwise violates their rights." It's unclear who reported the picture, but it wasn't on Instagram for long. Now, it appears that the photo has also been removed from Soundcloud as well, leaving the default gray and blue gradient as the cover.
There could be any number of reasons why the photo would have to be removed, but the most realistic reason is the photographer likely filed a copyright claim. However, it's much more entertaining to imagine that Drake himself got the cover taken off the internet, or maybe J. Prince made a phone call that they couldn't refuse.
Regardless, the beef appears to have settled down for the moment. We got a good week with the cover, but it appears to be gone for the moment. Unless this turns out to be some kind of mix-up, you'll have to find the photo somewhere else.
