Although the Donda Creative Agency is now closed, Perez wanted to share some of the designs he had a hand in creating that never saw the light of day.
In an Instagram post, Perez shared a rough concept of Kanye West’s album cover titled, ‘Chiraq’ that was created in April of 2015. In his caption, he also credited Virgil Abloh as a creative director for the design.

04.09.2015 – Kanye West “Chiraq” Rough concepts – Round 1 of 1. Possible album design and honestly can’t remember much past that since it was only a one round assignment. Executive Creative Direction: Kanye West Creative Direction: @virgilabloh Art Direction: @joe_r_perez @jjjjound @heron @natebrown Asst. Design: @100br
This album design was created about a year before West’s, ‘Life of Pablo’ project that was released in 2016. This leaves us wondering what happened to the album and if any songs from ‘Chiraq’ made the cut for ‘Life of Pablo.’
Who’s trying to find these songs to leak them?!
