Lil B’s Black Ken cover and some Wilfred Limonious scans

You can love or hate the Basegod but you gotta admit that’s a pretty good cover for a mixtape. The artwork was created by Benjamin Marra who is also responsible for the comparable 6 Kiss cover. It took me a second to figure out what the style of these reminded me of and then it hit me – a glossier more polished Wilfred Limonious. Limounious was a Jamaican graphic designer/illustrator responsible for some of the most memorable reggae and dancehall album covers of the 80s and early 90s. A few scans of his work are below the jump, does anybody else see a similarity here?
