My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

The artwork for Kanye's fifth magnum opus, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, was another collaboration, with Kanye tapping American painter George Condo to create a series of twisted images. The painting the rapper selected, of a grimacing Kanye-ish figure drinking a beer while being straddled by a nude, bizarre-looking half-woman half-phoenix, was banned in some retail chains, although Condo later revealed that Kanye purposely asked for an image that would be censored.
