Drake Releases 'Nothing Was The Same' LP Artwork
Rapper goes from a boy to a man on two covers for his third record...

Drake has revealed the artwork for his new album, Nothing Was The Same.
The rapper - who is due to perform at the 2013 MTV VMAs on Sunday (August 25) - will release his third studio LP on September 23, one week later than originally planned.
Drizzy's album comes complete with two covers, one showing a profile painting of a baby Aubrey, with a full afro and a pick in his hair. With a childlike wonderment in his eye, young Drake gazes toward the right with a white-clouded picture perfect, blue-sky in the background.
The second cover depicts a current Drake gazing to the left, with a full-beard, part in his hair and two chains around his neck. When positioned side-by-side, the two covers make it seem that Drake is staring at himself — past and present.
Both covers were designed by Kadir Nelson - who also created the album cover for Michel Jackson's 2010 posthumous compilation Michael.
The album's smooth-sounding second single, Hold On, We're Going Home, dropped earlier this month and has been quickly climbing up the US charts.
At the VMAs, Drizzy will give his first television performance of Started From the Bottom, his first release from NWTS.
The 2013 MTV Video Awards will be shown on MTV from 8pm on Monday August 26.
