The Library Steps, “Rap Dad, Real Dad”



The mattress is dusty samples all chopped up with punchy drums. The blankets are intricately woven lyrics that speak gently but urgently of loss, muffled trauma, being dope, and moving on with compassion & dignity. The pillow is that Jesse and Joey have been friends since the Roc era, ever since they used to freestyle with their friends on the Halifax Memorial Library steps in K’jipuktuk. Curled up in all that is you, and this music is your agitated dreams.
