Guardians

In the art museums of Russia, women sit in the galleries and guard the collections. When you look at the paintings and sculptures, the presence of the women becomes an inherent part of viewing the artwork itself. I found the guards as intriguing to observe as the pieces they watch over. In conversation they told me how much they like being among Russia’s great art. A woman in Moscow’s State Tretyakov Gallery Museum said she often returns there on her day off to sit in front of a painting that reminds her of her childhood home. Another guard travels three hours each day to work, since at home she would just sit on her porch and complain about her illnesses, “as old women do.” She would rather be at the museum enjoying the people watching, surrounded by the history of her country.

Before I say anything I’d like to thank God for all of the gifts he has given me, and the opportunity to share my music with you dope kids.

When I sat down on the phone with my managers (Nic and Cal) we talked for hours about making something different, striving to be unlike most rappers in our lane. We wanted to give people something they AUTHENTICALLY FUCK WITH, that’s why we have never shied away from spamming, nor have we ever tried to surpass our fan base by taking the easy way out, looking for a label to do the work for us. We are committed to bringing you all original, heartfelt material, and this is an example of that. Earl Sweatshirt’s “Chum” inspired the video, and the song was completely derived from personal experiences. I chose this as a single because I was tired of always being told I need to make a song for people to “turn up” to, I felt people need real shit sometimes.
