This came up at the most recent Mudd Up! Book Club, which led me to looking up this, which led me to the video below. Don’t like the way dude says “singing and dancing” near the end, and a couple other small things (and the way he looks at me) but otherwise fux wit it.
I sent my super talented artist friend Mreeuh Chang our Chants Remix, and a couple of hours later, I got back the sketch you see above.
Says Mreeuh: “I was workin on sketches when I received the song, this is what transpired. Don’t think I’m done. May turn it into a painting.”
Which of course, it did.
I think that this is the first time than an unsolicited sketch/painting emerged from sounds+words that I helped create. Which of course, was based on sounds that someone else created! And words that other people spoke! Miiiiiiiindwarp. Can’t even describe how much this shit boosted mines. Humbling and ego lifting at the same time, if that’s possible? Made me feel…understood, and shit. Thanks Mreeuh.
And if anyone reading this finds themselves in Cincinnati and in need of a tattoo, or just dope visual art in general, look her up.
Peace good peoples. I’m new around here, so thanks firstly to Jace for having me. This here is a mix from my group Old Money for the good folks at VANE. Less a compilation of “the new hot shit” and more so genuine touchstones of influence for us. A cpl unreleased jawns on there from us, as well as one from Boima’s forthcoming African In New York. I’m really and truly still amazed that Boima managed to make me like that Usher song. Vanity Jukebox Vol. 13 Pretty Danger Mixed by Old Money by sotrvanenyc Playlist 1.
