Yo Gotti is set to release what he is calling his final music project as a recording artist. The double-disc CM10: Free Game will drop on February 4. Gotti revealed the album’s artwork yesterday.
For the two CM10 covers, Yo Gotti took inspiration from two of the greatest rappers-turned-label heads of all time. New York City emcee Jay-Z and New Orleans emcee Lil Wayne influenced the art for the tenth chapter of Gotti’s Cocaine Muzik series.
“Side B” of CM10: Free Game is reminiscent of Jay-Z’s 1998 classic Vol. 2… Hard Knock Life. “Side A” was a take on 2005’s Tha Carter II by Lil Wayne which is also an homage to Vol. 2. Both projects were pivotal releases in the two rappers’ respective careers.
