Dude this album was sooo nice and i learned at least 50 new words and if there a song on the album i would want to be turned to a video is the song “Thrive” i haven’t heard the entire album but i listened to most and that was my favorite song the beat matched your flow
This is some of the coolest rap I’ve ever heard, I heard your promo and instantly downloaded the album. If you ever sign on with a record company, I promise you you’ll have at least one fan buying your cd!
^^ In response to Chris: I’m afraid rap isn’t normally unintelligent, just a lot of the music (in general, not just rap) that gets mass-marketed is, because the goal of it is to sell a consumer identity that has broad appeal. Real hip hop has a message, tells stories, or is at least rooted in the personal emotional experience of the artist. Music made with the goal of being expressive and beautiful is often very intelligent, or at least enjoyable in that it is honest powerful human expression. I guess what I’m saying is that there’s a ton of good music out there in every genre and style, you just have to dig for it. I’m glad you like my album, and I hope it will encourage you to explore even more underground music.
Thanks to everyone for stopping by, listening and commenting. The discourse is very exciting and encouraging to me as an artist.
^^ In response to Schuultz: You can download the track about crocs on the music page, just click the MUSIC button at the very top. The download is right under the embedded YouTube video.
(this ALBUM page is a sub-page of the MUSIC page)..
Awesome. For more intelligent rappers, I recommend checking out Greydon Square (a Physics major from Compton), Mr. Gawn and Proclaim, just to name a few. I would pay copious amounts of money to attend if these guys could get together and do a science based world tour. :)
I would just like to point out that I am definitely NOT anti-religious like the rappers you’ve recommended above, nor am I strictly pro-science. I am all for exploration, spiritual and scientific, of the world we live in. As (I hope) my album articulates, science and spirituality work for me harmoniously. While science provides me with a system by which to understand how the world works physically, the mythologies and religious traditions of old attempt to communicate and make sense of the emotional reality of how and why it is as astoundingly beautiful as it all is. And I need both, because at the end of the epoch the struggle of life and death has indeed refined the form… somehow the horror and strife and blood and pain has made it more beautiful and aware than its predecessors… And soon it is wondering WHY??!?
If I must take a stance, I am adamantly pro-adventure.
I just wanted to say that, in all honesty, this is one of the best rap albums I’ve heard. I love Thrive, In Mountains, and Sunspider. In Mountains is so poetic and you do such a good job at creating imagery of cold and frozen wastelands. You definitely have got some talent, man. I can’t wait to hear more from you.
Speaking of adventures, if one happened to feel so inclined, is there a way we can fund your adventures by buying the album? I’m glad I’m able to hear it for free, but I would like to pay for it. =D
Thanks for the FB message invite for this.
This is incredibly tight.
I cannot express it enough. xDD
I had a blast listening to it while doing homework.
It definitely made my night. :P
Keep up the good work.
This is funny. Your music is good, and some is even built on the parameters of entering competitions, and it’s free to download. While music that tells everyone “let’s get wasted, make money or die trying, and other garbage”, you got a track called eat your vegetables. I remember Mitch Hedburg doing stand up and telling people not to cheer him on when he drank, but to cheer people on when they take a vitamin.
Beautiful music. “Open Your Eyes” definately resonates deep…deep…deep. “…organized according to holy symmetry”, yes sir! And indeed, I’ve seen the laser beam creatures, with hooded glowing robes of changing color, in a dream. I descended undergound and was suddenly in their presence, they paid me no attention but with heads lowered they marched along their path. Their territory was guarded by glowing barbed wire, though in the dream world we may percieve varying degrees of what is an actual place; the message can become garbled. Regardless, we, as a race, will share these experiences, and that’s the main point. And these beings may not all be evil, perhaps reflections of inner dual reality…they may be polarized towards an ill-purpose, but they should present a challenge to us all, for we all possess energies and desires that, from time to time, are non-conducive to planetary progression. “…align with light and smite all of these hateful enemies” -peace, love, and the will to create balance
Hey man, i found you on youtube, there’s some crazy stuff on here. you’ve got some beautiful artwork and the music is incredible. you got some good things going here, i hope you keep it up! you’ve been an inspiration
all of your work pales in comparison to open your eyes. i’d say that that song is the perfectly egocentric piece which holds all of your other work to its own standard. and of course, as goa gil said in his youtube excerpt…”without ego, cosmic ego, there would be no creation at all… all of these things are tools for the soul to…um…come into the world…and experience the things of the world…and find fulfillment and completion…and we should see them as tools” (last hippie standing – goa gil video) there’s a very clean drawing power in the open your eyes video and music, even though it doesnt necessarily give practical advice for normal and everyday mortal life. nevertheless, amazingly satisfying
The album Earth Beasts Awaken was amazing, I purchased one of the hand-painted copies and I love it. The artwork is ridiculous, love the lyricism. Your music is amazing and inspiring, and i love the music videos.
My mind was thoroughly blown by the truth portrayed in your latest song.
Perfectly and intricately worded. Thank you for being my newest Lyrical influence.
I’m sure open eyes are still unfathomable at times.
You show me that there are many more conscious artists out there.
