Cornell Stokes is a crime lord and owner of the Harlem’s Paradise club. Although he is a crime lord he himself says that he never wanted to be a part of the family’s business and that he really wanted to be a jazz musician. My concept is a series of albums that are a “what if” scenario where he did become a musician. Each of the albums are based on a time in his character arc, and this is reflected in the design by a variation in the color palette. The package design for each of the albums is also based on Cornell’s own style, though a lot of their design is pulled from his office at Harlem’s Paradise.
