The homie Jeremy Ian Thomas (fka Surreal) sent me this project a few days ago, and I had to sit with it a bit and absorb what he was doing.
Multi talented brother, with the beats, the rhymes, with film.
Here’s what he had to say about it:
Gordon Parks is one of my hero’s.
His work has always been a source of truth for me.
I made most of these following the shooting in Charleston. I was in a deep depression, and found myself looking at his photos. I felt compelled to make a sort of musical essay on Gordon and his worldview.
