Kanye West has revealed the 'Yeezus' cover art and it may look like a CD mixtape you've burned for one of your friends, which is precisely what makes it so shocking. The clear jewel case reveals a plain CD without artwork, and is stripped of an accompanying booklet with song lyrics. The case is wrapped with a red duct-tape sticker that has 'Yeezus' scrolled on it in handwriting.

This controversial pared-down packaging has people talking and not all are happy about it either. Either way, the unconventional DIY-like packaging is sure to grab attention in record stores. And with so many people digitally downloading music, the unceremonious CD seems to make a defiant statement about the efforts that go into making the artful hard copies of music.
