ICE CUBE Death Certificate released October 29, 1991 by Priority Records and EMI
Ice Cube’s real name is O’Shea Jackson, he was born on June 15, 1969 (aged 48) in Los Angeles, California
The albums content held racially and politically charged content, Ice Cube’s statements on drug dealing, racial profiling, and the right to keep and have possession of armed weaponry, Death Certificate was the source of much controversy upon its release. In 2003, Priority Records re-released Death Certificate with the bonus track “How to Survive in South Central”, which originally came from the Boyz n the Hood soundtrack. Death Certificate included the diss track “No Vaseline” which is a response to his previous rap group N.W.A, and their album Niggaz4Life which included diss tracks and verses to Ice Cube.
While making Death Certificate, Ice Cube was said to be involved with the Nation of Islam, which had a large impact on the of the album’s content, although he denied being part of the organization. Death Certificate was approximately organized as two particular elements of a larger whole, and opens with Cube’s explanation: “The Death Side: a mirror image of where we are today; The Life Side: a vision of where we need to go.” The first half, therefore, it talks about stories of drug dealing, whore-mongering and violence expected of a gangsta rap album in 1991.
Uncle Sam, was popular symbol for the United States, usually associated with a cartoon figure having long white hair and chin whiskers and dressed in a swallow-tailed coat, vest, tall hat, and striped trousers. His appearance originated from two earlier symbolic figures in American folklore: Yankee Doodle, a British-inspired nickname for American colonials during the American Revolution, and Brother Jonathan, a rural American wit who, by surprising displays of native intelligence, always triumphed over his adversaries in plays, stories, cartoons, and verse.
Uncle Sam has been featured in this album cover as Ice cube is using Uncle Sam as a metaphor by saying America is dying hence why Uncle Sam is dead with the stars and stripes over the top of him.

Existing flyer products
These are four existing products of flyers promoting a Hip- Hop/ Trap artists gig/ tour, I like the first 2 the best, I like the first one as its a simple design using a normal portrait of asap rocky and simple font, this, makes it easy for people to read. where as the second flyer is animated. I like the wavey font in this flyer as it catches your eye and you don’t see many flyers with this type of font, I a going to attempt to make a font similar to this in my flyer to promote my artists tour.
This is ASAP Mobs website design, I like this design because there is a lot going on and how every bit of space has been used up, i also like how it shows the new songs that will be coming out and on which date. The website also consists of existing music videos created by asap mob and has little tabs in the top right which will either take you to: music, news, media, tour, join, lyrics and store.
This is Kendrick Lamar’s website, I like this design because the layout is simple but effective, they have used up majority of the space by including recent releases, and tabs which would lead you to a Facebook, instagram, iTunes, spotify and twitter link.
This is the Migos website design, this is my favourite design out of the 3 because i like the layout of it, it is easy to read and is a simple design, there is a lot of un-used space which allows all the focus to be on the main tabs, the image of the Migos and the timed image gallery.
I have also been looking at merchandise made to promote hip hop artists, I have noticed that either black and white colours are mainly used with a large image in the centre of the front, it normally has either the artist face, their logo or their name.
My target audience will be 17- 25 year olds both male and females, I chose this specific age group as rap and Hip Hop is popular at this point in time and appeals to this age group more than others. I am also aiming to attract all different types of classes of people as it doesn’t matter if you’re wealthy or poor as long as you enjoy the music.
Collage is a technique of an art production, mostly used in the visual arts, where the artwork is made from an assemblage of different forms, creating a new whole image.
Examples of collage artists

Nicholas James Gentry is a British artist from London. Much of his artistic output has been generated with the use of contributed artefacts and materials. He states that through this process “contributor, artist and viewer come closer together”
Nick Gentry was born in Hampstead, London and grew up in the nearby historic market city of St Albans. From an early age he spent much of his childhood drawing and sketching. He attended Parmiter’s School in Garston Hertfordshire and during a troubled time he came close to being expelled on numerous occasions. He continued to study art at Ridge Street Art School and the University of Hertfordshire.
Born: 9 July 1937 (age 80 years)- Bradford
David Hockney is an English painter, draftsman, printmaker, stage designer and photographer. An important contributor to the pop art movement of the 1960s, he is considered one of the most influential British artists of the 20th century.
I like his work as it has aspects of both modern and old art, I also feel that it is very creative and isn’t like other collages. Hockney is a talented artist and has a variety of different work from portraits to collages.
