Use your brain, appreciate art don't discriminate what you don't understand— zayn (@zaynmalik) February 19, 2016
-Zayn revealed the cover for his album Mind of Mine coming out March 25th
-People quickly noted the similarity between the cover and Lil Wayne's Tha Carter III and IV, since both have childhood photos with their current tattoos photoshopped on
-A billion tweets were made showing the irony of Zayn tweeting that people have no originality these days when he copied Wayne's cover
-Zayn used twitter to say he isn't trying to be "no rapper" aka Lil Wayne and that he has had his own original ideas for a long time
-He went on to say that you should appreciate, not discriminate #artpop
He also RT'd this saying that Lil Wayne isn't the only person who uses baby pictures and that he's paying tribute to legends like Drake, Nas, and The Notorious BIG.
