Twelve years ago today was a tragedy in American history, so I’ma briefly acknowledge that. RIP Bernard. RIP everyone else lost of dat day, hope the families of those lost are doing well today in spite of that.

Kwes of the ST3 brought some friends along on this trudging journey through each of their respective minds. Hard, groovy, and introspective track, yet really general.

Plus da beat just fills me with youthful vigor. It reminds me of my days down in FL when I was a young buck leaping from logs like frogger and whatnot. Lemme not get carried away though…
