If You're Reading This It's Too Late Album Cover Parodies is a photoshop meme parodying the cover of Drake's 2015 mixtape. The images consist of text written in crude block handwriting with the letter "E" tilted at a 45 degree angle, a style created by the street artist Jim Joe, nicknamed "Drakefont". The parodies are mainly spread around Tumblr .
If You're Reading This It's Too Late is the fourth mixtape by Candian rapper Drake. Upon release, it received positive reviews from contemporary critics including Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and The Telegraph. It also sold well, debuting #1 on the Billboard 200.
Despite the album being released on February 13th, 2015 with no prior announcement, developer Rik Lomas and artist Simon Whybray created and launched a meme generator called "If You're Typing This It's Too Late" the day of the release.
The meme generator was written about in several mainstream publications, including hip hop magazine Complex and general music web site The Fader. Two images from these posts were frequently reblogged on Tumblr, including one that read "If You're Looking For A Valentine's Date It's Too Late" and another that read "You Need To Act Your Age And Not Your Girl's Age". The latter is a lyric from the mixtape.
In addition, users on the fan forum Kanye To The began a thread of Photoshop parodies of different construction. These differed from the generator memes in that they usually consisted of the cover art transposed into a different locations, like the cardboard insert of a toilet paper roll.
