Behind The Scenes Look at The Roots’ New LP Cover Shoot

Photos by Mel D. Cole

The Roots have a highly anticipated new album coming out, titled “&TYSYC“, and with that comes the excitement of creating brand new cover art. The group already has some of the most popular and recognizable album covers in the Hip Hip today, so we were happy to find that photographer Mel D. Cole was on the scene to capture a behind-the-scenes look at The Roots new LP cover shoot.

At first glance, it seems the group decided to go with a dapper look for the new cover, keeping it simple yet classy, wearing suits and ties with a solid background. Check out the photos below and be sure to check out more of the photographer’s music photo work here.
