Arriving one year after his milestone album The Payback, Brown delivered the double-album Hell, which called out societal ills both on record and on the elaborately illustrated cover. Designed by artist Joe Belt, who made his name capturing the characters of the Wild West, Belt trained his aim on another dark chapter of American history, depicting fallen soldiers, addicts, and an imprisoned populace. One of the most famous funk album covers ever.
Brown’s sixth album, I Am the Truth, pushed him past the pop-soul sound that had been his trademark, fusing hip-hop production with the more energetic forms he had mastered over the past five years, a formula that would lead to his sixth platinum album, the brownstone brass-heavy Resurrection. d2c66b5586
