I can’t express how tired I am of seeing black death on my screens. I can’t seem to escape seeing a video of someone killing a Black Person, it’s even shown on the news on replay every hour.

The influence of Anime, Gaming and other nerd related topics are prevalent in his artistry. Not just musically but it’s represented visually as well.
