Throw another EP on the pile. I made these five songs in the past week. I’ve been using these EPs to try out some different flows and styles, less geeky stuff, etc. Hope you’re enjoying them.

Minimal Explanations


How Close (intro)
Confessions of a Dangerous Mind is one of my favorite movies. I love this quote. It’s so incredibly dark, and yet weirdly uplifting at the same time. A kick in the pants.


Chutes and Ladders
I just wanted to do a fast rap song. I blame it on all the Yelawolf I listen to


Juggernaut

This is sorta geeky, no? It’s pretty self explanatory.


Insincere

I have a friend who recently told me that in casual conversation, everything I say is cynical or ironic or sarcastic. I started to argue, and then I kind of realized that she’s right. So I wrote this song.


Full Stomachs

I love Beefy. Isn’t he great? We just made this song in about an hour.


I Used to Listen to De La Soul A Lot

Besides having an absurdly long title (which I love in songs), this song is a nice capper to 2011. “I Am I Be” is one of my favorite hip hop songs of all time. I think this may also be the first time I’ve said my first AND last name in a song.


Parthenon

I put this out on Black Friday, I thought I’d throw this on there. It’s about...I dunno, life or stuff.
