Nas is convincing us that life is really all that good with his glum countenance on the cover of his new album. Life Is Good is the first album from the rapper since his messy (and expensive) split with Kelis, and it appears that he hasn’t quite gotten over it — on the LP cover, Nas holds onto his ex-wife’s colorful wedding dress (or a similar version of it), the only item she left behind when the couple broke up in 2010. Let this be a lesson to you: if you leave behind anything after a break up, your ex is free to do with it whatever he or she pleases. And that includes incorporating it into his album artwork.
Kelis has a new album on the way, too — we wouldn’t blame her if she happened to snag a recreation of Nas’ wedding-day tux for her cover, but we think she’s too classy a lady to respond in such a manner. If anything, she’ll just blast him through the power of song.
