Artist Sixmau Blasts J. Cole For Breaching Agreement Over Cover Art

The artist that created the masterful cover art for J. Cole’s KOD album has a HUGE bone to pick with him after he says Jermaine stiffed his pockets.

Sixmau aka Kamau Haroon blasted Cole for allegedly being misleading in their agreement. Kamau insists Cole never made it clear that he would be replicating the artwork for tour merchandise and scoring millions off of it, while he made zero merch bucks.

Kamau wrote on Twitter over the incident:

“I did all the creative direction for the KOD album and he told me my work was only going to be used for booklet art. Only to turn around and make merchandise illegally with my art behind my back and profit majorly off it while on tour. F-ck them.”

Sixmau added that he was comfortable making a verbal agreement with Dreamville and J. Cole to license the art because his “message is of positivity.” To make matters even worse on his end, the painter claims he is on the verge of homelessness after having a trying year.

Sixmau retweeted the following tweets, reinserting that he wasn’t compensated after his work was plastered over thousands of t-shirts and hoodies and he’s struggling financially.

So far, J Cole has not responded to Kamau’s allegations against him.

Do YOU think he should reach out to clear this all up?
