For his new mixtape Spaghetti Factory, Atlanta's lovable goofball Peewee Longway managed to come up with one of the most memorable mixtape covers in recent memory. In an era where a lot of artists try to shroud themselves in an intense air of mystery, it's nice to see someone literally smush their whole face in a pile of spaghetti.
Over email with The FADER, KD said that the cover concept was his idea and it was a speedy creative process. "When he gave me the title of the mixtape, the first thing that came to my mind was to have a portrait of him made out of spaghetti," he said. "So I got to work right away because I was so excited about the idea. I had FaceTimed Peewee to show him a preview of the cover before it was even remotely finished and he started smiling super hard so I knew he was going to love the finished product."
Longway has a history of offbeat covers including a portrait of an iced-out blue M&M that KD created as well. "Peewee knows my way of thinking when it comes to my artwork so I knew it would be something he would expect from me," KD added.
