Kanye's sophomore LP, 2005's expansive Late Registration, featured the return of Dropout Bear. He's wide-eyed and smaller. Maybe that's how Kanye felt after the unexpected success of his first album. Or how he would feel a few days after the album's release, when he said "George Bush doesn't care about black people" on live TV. Either way, the Bear's spiffed up uniform and the cover's darker look reflect the more mature, serious subject matter and tone on Late Registration.
