Today, he has unveiled the official artwork for the project, done by L.A. based artist Cleon Peterson. “Its titled END OF EMPIRE. End of empire is about upending the system, taking power back from the corrupt and fighting for justice. #POISON = POISE ON !! Let the Madness begin,” Swizz said about the cover.
The album is expected to go live for pre-order on Thursday night. Check out the cover below.
