Music and art go hand in hand as they both serve useful purposes for each other. A good cover art/design can move people to listen to your song/album and vice versa. That’s more reason so many artists nowadays put more effort in ensuring their cover designs are as good as the music they are putting out. Just as the phrase says; ”a picture can mean a thousand words,” such is the case of designs as they help to put an image in the mind of music listeners. It truly goes a long way.

In CHH, there are a few creative known for working with Christian rap artists in promoting their songs through cover art/designs. Just as a producer and a mixing engineer is as important in making a song a success, the designers also have a huge role to play.
