“If you see how Wiz dresses now, it already gives you this whole hippie feel,” Fatima adds. “This whole ’70s vibe. This sleazy, rockstar-type image. This is what we wanted it to be and we wanted people to see the transition from how Wiz used to dress, up until now. This is where we’re at with the album, the music. It all goes together.”

“The artwork, it relates to the title,” Khalifa told MTV. “It relates to what I’ve been portraying and what I’ve been bringing to the game for the past couple of months because like I say, in my music, and like I’ve been saying recently, ‘They stole the swag, and I don’t want it back.’ I had to change up things; I had to turn it up. So it’s like the album artwork is just another step in the turning up.”
“The cover art should give you confidence and let you know you can fully be yourself in front of people no matter what they say or think,” Khalifa tweeted on Wednesday. It was a message that was quickly retweeted more than 2,000 times.
“That album cover is epic as f**k,” tweeted Odd Future leader Tyler the Creator.
