As Donwill tends to the plants These industry plants Thought machines had green, thumbs but you sing like beings After cream, Penny for my thoughts, Dollar and a dream, That's a 100 per goal, Or at least overthinking, Snap then leave your face wrapped like The Weeknd, I'm really from the hood hood, That's in italics, My fans are Miss Info with Illmatic, Jerry with The Fix, Haters trying to Jerry rig a miss, Do remember i'm very with the shits, ...DJ Pooh you know I wouldn’t trip, After the bars rappers gon cry in the car, What does it have to do with the price of a slice, In New York City its all types, I was too shame to try and fly a kite in the tenements, I need 3 new hobbies before my 50th, That's a decade to try shit, Then i'll start the memoir, promise not to dry snitch, ....before I had ish I had com sense, Enough to ignore people in the comments, what’s about to happen, Time to make the fans say, Yeah I liked em better before they was a fan fave, any cut im on, Im ripping off the band aid, If skills sold truth be told id need a bigger glass case

You wrote yourself in spaces where my doubt lived I need Space to just be I wanna shake hands with all the hands that helped shape me Ancestors, enemies, lovers, friends Emotions I bask in or don't wanna feel again Old habits, new haunts, daily jaunts Discovering myself through my needs and wants Gotta space those out woke up feeling like this nigga ain't yo house You just rent space out, but where do you belong? make room for myself when I make these songs It’s lookin like the space is all gone stuck behind yellow tape, where the red line’s drawn Every city in America’s a sundown town So many worlds have been offered to me Had to look hard to see if I saw myself in each i’m not tryna shrink I need to fill up the room Or be accommodated in ways that can’t be assumed We far beyond negotiating My people drowned in these waters that we’re navigating These dollar signs is nothing major I want protection happiness safety We aching for them acres, Dying in environments I’m trying to find a peaceful spot that I can retire in We running out of space tho So they run to outer space I bet that we can’t go Blue skies, clean air, green grass , clean water The least they can give. a baseline offer Every city in America’s a sundown town

about

A little under a year ago I dropped an EP titled SAFE and today I bookend it with a companion piece tilted SPACE. Where as SAFE was a set of songs examining the need to be and feel safe this time around I took some time to examine what it means to have space as a black person in America.

Space is something that I think about constantly. If I’m not actively thinking about it I am consequently dealing with the various ways it affects me. The last year has really forced me to deal with the concept of space in ways that I’ve never really even considered.

On this project the concept of space presents itself in a number of ways both personally and artistically. I created this set of songs in an entirely new living space. I didn’t fill this project up with raps like I usually do, this time I left space for you to have your own thoughts about the theme only chiming in at the end to say a few words.

Thank you for making space in your life for my music. It is greatly appreciated. Hopefully you enjoy listening to this project as much as I enjoyed making it.

Don
