I Am (2009)
GQ Freestyle (2013)
In case you didn’t see my previous posts, Busta Rhymes and Q-Tip’s highly anticipated mixtape The Abstract And The Dragon drops tonight at midnight. I’ve already reviewed their superb single Thank You, and I’m pretty sure since it’s $1.29 on itunes it wont be featured on this free release. That said, I’ll be posting a review of my favorite song off the mixtape tomorrow, along with a general synopsis of the project as a whole. I really hope it lives up to my expectations.
"It’s not a very pretty or perfect love, or even necessarily a romantic love. It doesn’t look cool. It’s more like two helpless things in the wild, and one says ‘I’ll protect you’, and both parties know it’s a lie because there’s no way either of them can protect the other from anything. That lie is the best way to describe this love. That feeling of not having to say ‘I’m scared’, because you share the exact feelings without having words over or under complicate it, that’s worth more than protection. It’s a connection. The less alone. That is all we look for on earth." - Because the Internet Screenplay.
This is definitely gonna be the first dance song after my wedding.

Yes!! Finally, I can relax.
Ironic, huh. (If you read the screenplay this will make sense.)
"Because The Internet" (For Childish Gambino) - Illustration by Sam SprattAfter illustrating Donald Glover’s Royalty series, he hit me up again to create the poster for his new album “Because The Internet”. The artwork ties directly into the narrative of his album and its screenplay (which are incredible — seriously, look and listen to this, it’s beautiful and crazy) — and while I was mostly given free reign, he handled all art direction personally.I won’t be selling the poster personally, but you can get them at the mansion parties he’s throwing — more in the near future.
