This blood red album represents two different things.

  • The water in the image appears to be blood — Young Money killed their competition (metaphorically we hope) in order for their empire to grow. This is also symbolic because Lil Wayne, Birdman, and Mack Maine are all Bloods.

  • Secondly, it signifies Mars (note how Earth is in the background.) Lil Wayne has made many references to Mars and claims that he isn’t a human being.

See my generation has no shame, I play the game Backwards by Kendrick Lamar (Ft. Tame Impala)

You know why we crack babies
Because we born in the ‘80s

As an artist who was born during the Ronald Reagan Era, Kendrick knows all about the harsh conditions and mindsets instilled as an effect of Reagan’s drug policies. This theme is present in a lot of Kendrick’s music, especially his 2011 project, Section.80.

You live dormant, I die enormous Backwards by Kendrick Lamar (Ft. Tame Impala)

A reference to Jay Z’s line from “Can I Live”

Easily, explain why we adapt to crime
I’d rather die enormous than live dormant, that’s how we on it

Instead of living a slow, boring, almost worthless life, Kendrick prefers to live large — blowing up and making an impact.
