Stef, if I may,
You're one of main reasons I got into hip-hop. Never Better is by far my favorite hip-hop album and one of the most influential albums of my college years. WDELH has definitely been on heavy rotation since I've been able to hear it.
I was curious, though, about the difference in tone between the older albums and WDELH. Previously, your albums were very personal and almost... emotional, I guess? WDELH is much more conceptual and deals with bigger issues in society. Why the change? Did something happen in the past couple years that pushed these themes to the forefront?
I really appreciate you doing this, man. You're one of my musical heroes.
lots happened. a lot of us worked hard to get obama in office. only to feel fucked over by the civil liberties tossed away by the admin.
i dont know. its hard to write about my feelings about much else from how this world is.
that said, under the rarrr its still a pretty personal record, just different. i hope i can grow through everything i make.
