Can't Tell Me Nothing

The cover to Kanye's masterful 2007 mixtape Can't Tell Me Nothing, a prelude to Graduation later that year, was designed by renowned Japanse artist Takashi Murakami, the beginning of a fruitful partnership between the two. It was also the start of Kanye's love affair with neon-bright colors and futuristic, slightly disturbing imagery. Is that Murakami's interpretation of poor Dropout Bear?
