The #ReturnOfRap is an album. A rap album. It has a job. To take you on a journey through a narrative and take you through the emotions of an audio conversation. Its broken into two sides. Side A has a vinyl aesthetic that is comfortable and rich with instrumentation. As it comes to a close.. side B begins with the sound of a CD going in and then the landscape changes. This leaves the listener with only one thing to do… #PickASide.
