Yesterday, I spent a total of 12 hours listening to Oks’ tape to determine my objective view on this body of work. From the 13 tracks, I’ve picked 8 that I feel are the most exceptional and representative of his aesthetic, flow, craft, reason, epistemology, and overall character as an artist and creative human being. This was a tough analysis, but here are my final thoughts.
I hit up my boy Mensa Kondo, a D.C.-native fine artist, to see if I could come through to chill with him at his spot and rap about his latest projects, plans for the year, and peep these super rare Yu-Gi-Oh! cards his art students gave him that afternoon. Check the goods.
Last night, Black Congolese journeyed into the burrows of Brooklyn to join BRIC Media House in their grand opening reception of their latest curated gallery, “Art Into Music,” featuring incredible artists from Dread Scott to Ward Shelley. Guest writer, RGB V CMYK, accompanied me and took field notes of the evening. Enjoy.
