This album is really a nod to all my ghees that can’t go anywhere without a marker, and can’t help but get paint on they hands. My best embodiment of the eras of graffiti I am most familiar with cause thats what I was seeing. Something about late 90s early 2000s graffiti the rawness the repetition of it reminds me of so many aspects of my youth its almost inescapable. Everything about that inspired this, enjoy.
