Tai Allen + Jonn Nubian (vicelounge) and Branded Werkz/InGrooves present
i wanted to make a record that held some of the audio art that runs through my head. this EP was done with the understanding that i am making life difficult for reviewers but easy for music lovers. we took liberties: on the project I am rocking live; spitting a poem in the middle of cypher; singing about missing work to stay with a lover, with the snare drum absent; telling about my love for children over spacey jam by jonn nubian; getting electro-soulish to discuss sex; and, dropping some break beats that would make James Brown and Sade envious.
vicious boy is meant to be a good different.
i pray that was accomplished.
i had fun making all this music — and i believe it shows!!
