power trip

Hello, this song Power Trip by Klassy matters to me a lot.  I thought you might enjoy it.  Usually music videos don’t make me cry.  Am I having PMS, or is this really sad?  How about both.

dumbfoundead

God is a woman

Kind of like how I got full on seeing God as a man, so I needed to switch to seeing God is a woman, and it never felt like time to go back.  “Oh, this break from seeing God as a man feels nice.  I guess this break will be….my whole life.” Then I was… Read More »

July July

I rapped about a desert heat wave.  Here’s the soundcloud link.  It’s called July July. It’s about surviving high temps with poor technology.  Trying to eat and stay hydrated.  I like “ice pack for a hat” and “jank is unfair.”  If you get the chance, please enjoy. Thank you to those artists who leave free… Read More »

apricot cousin

Hey, gmorning!  I’m working on a series of songs related to family.  I rapped a new one, Apricot Cousin.  I have the strong feeling I need to talk to my departed relatives, especially my cousin who died last year, and my dad. But it felt incorrect, as it’s spring.  I associate talking to the dead… Read More »
