This album is mainly my approach of exhibiting y’all extra sides to myself musically and conceptually. Quite a lot of our tradition desires you to do the identical factor again and again. That’s comprehensible however not sensible as we’re without end evolving as human beings. So, whereas I proceed to serve jedi degree barbarian bars, I’m including some issues to the menu. Plus, Ron Browz is a lowkey genius and must be celebrated extra,” Rock detailed on his second solo venture.
