That cover is bangin Sho; Symbolism to the fullest

This looks like a hot mess!!!!! Sho's first album cover was more symbolic. A mic in a crown? A bit cheezy, but I'll still by the jawn cause I love his craft!!!
Grace and Peace

Funny Vinnie, your judgement doesn't sound very "grace"-ful. Your "hot mess" comment is a hot mess and the mic is hardly noticeable. Fall back homie.

I'm scared...but I'll be buying the album on itunes :) so looking forward to the it nonetheless

yo this is a little creepy bro! real talk. think about your demographics as well. a lot of teens don't have expendable income and relay on their parents to purchase music for them. That said, the older demo will definitely find this a bit disturbing and hesitate on purchasing this for their children. Come on bro. We need to be cool and hip about getting the message out be we need to move units as well bro! If a new consumer walks by and see this there first impression will be "o my, what's his deal!?" You core fans know you so you have their support but you have to think about the new fans you're trying to bring in.

I believe the album cover is very prophetic!! Love the symbolism, very creative! Great job and I am looking forward to it.

Erm look like a "Lions know their environment and take over'...

Nice cover. Glad to see it is different from what the worldly ways. Stand out from the crowd and stand up for Jesus.

– Jan 1 2010

this cover isnt creepy. its deep man. good job sho, its hard to pull off something so intricate and not make it corny. but i think its obvious you were able to pull it off here. and we know not to judge an album by its cover. whats scary about a lion? and shos face? i dont think parents will think anything of it. thats prolly about 10% or less of the demographic

The cover is kinda scary, but I don't think it would stop me from purchasing the album for my child. That seems a bit extreme, but ok. The artwork is nice, but it seems more for a frame than an album cover.

Honestly, I think the most important thing is that this is Christ centered music with a focus on Christ. One thing is for sure the album cover won't stop me from purchasing it. I'm looking forward to hearing it Sho.

– Jan 1 2010

Sho, you definitely are keeping in the Word man. Lovin the album cover, it's unique, it's fresh, and it makes you think. I am definitely excited to get this. Ain't scary at all, I find it awesome :) Keep it up, and stand firm. Much love.
In Christ,

Sho - everyone hatin' on the cover but I'm feelin' it hardcore! Good job with the concept and I can't wait to hear the album, your storytelling technique is excellent and your rhyme schemes and similes smash. Keep it up.

reality check
– Jan 2 2010

Yo man I read a couple of the comments and was very unhappy. People are quick to judge it. I mean what is the difference between this cover or the one in 50's cover. Let's show the love. I'm mosy def getting this cause it comes out the day after my b'day

– Jan 2 2010

I love the cover. Yes, it is different, but this is the type of cover that will draw attention. I saw the cover and it drew me to this post. It is different, and I have no doubt that it will have trouble gaining people's attention. I am looking forward to this album. Preaching Jesus till the death homie :)

forget the haters sho! they don't know what real creativeness is! the album cover is great, hope the album is fire too!

– Jan 2 2010

This is an awesome cover. If you are worried about what people think then its obvious you are not reading write. If people were to see the cover it will compel them to hear the content. Christian Hip Hop need something to spice it up and Sho Baraka is doing it.

– Jan 2 2010

yo Sho man GOD bless i no u gne do it Big on ur 2nd 1 but make sure in da rite way, under GOD baby *14 24 34 TWWID* 116 fo Life

Reach Records good evening, I want to let you know that Entermission by DJ Official is an awesome album. I have purchased every single album on Reach Records. I look forward to buying Lions and Liars by Sho Baraka. I see that you are in your Bible in the Title and Album cover of this album "we share in an Heirship with The Lord Jesus Christ." Jesus Christ is The Lion of Judah therefore we share in being Lions and Lionesses in an Heirship with Jesus Christ The Lion of Judah. I like it! Jesus Christ is Protector, Provider, Deliverer, Healer, Reddeemer, Prophet, Priest, King, Savior, Lord and God to all those who believe in him. Jesus Christ is the Author of Eternal Salvation of all those who obey him. Jesus Christ is Captain of our Salvation. Jesus Christ is God Manifest in the flesh forever and ever Amen.

That album art is an instant, right-click, save as.

Just can't let my parents see without having to explain.
Probably going to get this one as well.

The artwork look solid, but one thing I agree with others' comment, it looks somewhat scary.
I really liked the illustration and simplicity of the last album art, the one with "Word".
If possible, try to come up with one which is a mix of these two.
Stay Blessed!

– Jan 3 2010

Eh Sho, that cover is hot man. I love the symbology, especially since the Lion reps the power and strength of Jesus. Most definitely looking forward to it. God bless you dude and the rest of the 116

– Jan 3 2010

Sho, im lovin the album cover. Its obvious that it grabs people's attention. if i saw this in a Christian store i would defiantly look at it. Its not scary at all, its real deep. now ima be lookin forward to 3/30/12.

– Jan 3 2010

Cover is definitely without a doubt tyte work! To the people who talked about the cover in a negative light, you gotta look at the concept behind it. We need to stop having such a "holier than thou" mentality and so quick to judge. The Lord has given Sho a vision concerning this album and he is fulfilling that vision. "Doctrinally Sound, Culturally Relevant.".

Lions, Liars, and Bears....O' My!

The album cover is Ferocious!!!

If the album is going to be even sicker than the first single "WORD," then Jesus, Mrs. Baraka, Reach, and us followers should all be proud. All signs and singles point toward an AWESOME album. March 30th will be "hear" b4 we know it!

Keep it "Low" Sho!

I aint gone ly, the cover is weird, but maybe because I don't understand it's full meaing. Anyway, I can't wait for the album homie. God Bless.

– Jan 4 2010

wow, I've been reading the comments and wow. I didn't think the cover was creepy or scary at all, but I guess some do.
Come on, Sho, let us hear another single. Win over those who don't like the cover with some great music!

Oh my goodnesss, you've got to be kidding me....I know some of ya'll are not scared of this cover....No wonder we have so many Christians scared of the enemy....But anyways enough on my soapbox, I'm digging this album cover man...symbolism is tight and it flows with the title, don't change it, be you and you only....I always dig your swagger man, so be easy and blessed....

Grace and Peace
