'I do it for Dooterz, you know that she straight' The Sacramento Slangster king of our times. Sacramento and the Bay Area in general have probably the most insular musical culture in America, but Mozzy has quietly been one of the best for a while. He’s like the ultimate gangster rapper who’s settled, content, respected … Continue reading Therapy Raps Pt. 1
Salute the god Cillian Dubock who killed this @foxyduboxy @hagbox3 Travis Scott loves to sing shit like ‘I’m DrOwNinG iN EuPhoRia’ because he’s a CIA-funded android designed to quell dissent through the proliferation of vibes who was programmed to believe that euphoria is this really wavy vibe that humans experience.

Like a warm cup of honey-lemon tea or a soft pillow to lay your head. Perhaps good music for rainy quarantine.
