“2023 is the 50th Anniversary of the inception of hip hop culture. A culture that saved my life and has been the foundation of everything I’ve been able to do in life. In celebration of hip hop’s 50th birthday I wanted to honor it with this new EP, sticking to the core principals. I kept it raw and simple yet intricate at the same time. Layered writing, dope production and relevant content. As a hip hop educator, myself I was honored to get on a track and spar with Mickey on “Consummate Professional”. I wanted each track to have a different feel yet cohesively blend together at the same time and the help of Asethic & Ayo Shamir on the boards, I feel we did that.” – Devine Carama
