The 25 Best Album Covers of 2012

4. Nas, Life Is Good

Label: Def Jam
Art Director: Alex Haldi

Heartbreak breeds many emotions. On Life Is Good, Nas confronts his own feelings over the last few years, with the cover depicting the dapper Queens MC in thought while he holds his ex-wife's (Kelis) green wedding dress.

In that respect, the image serves a dual purpose. Whereas it's evident that Nas has moved on in his life, he is also reminded of an influential and tumultuous past, which, in the end, made for some of the best music he's created in years.
