Tetsuo And Youth

This cover for Lupe Fiasco’s “Tetsuo And Youth” draws from the seminal Anime film “Akira” and the theme of the album’s single “Mission”, an anthem of hope for cancer patients and survivors to create the image here. A small girl receiving treatment for the affliction stands, creating art as therapy. The colours blended to create Lupe’s face are a nod to Tetsuo’s mutation in the third act of the film, the unfinished piece of his face, the outside of Chicago, his hometown and the trademark pills can be seen in the print of the child’s hospital gown. Good for health, bad for education.
