"SURRILLA" is a contemporary re-imagining of the "Hero's Journey" filtered through the perspective of the Urban Youth..
The Heroes of this story are those pushing boundaries past the limitations society has placed for them.
"SURRILLA" is the antithesis to the modern narrative of the urban youth of America. Except, this narrative is cloaked in vulnerability, hope and empowerment. Topics that aren't always approached with the same level of honesty and mindfulness that this album portrays.
Think beyond the traditional "establishment" of Hip Hop and Pop Music and experience a unique auditory cascade of consciousness, soul and depth.
