while seemingly identical dance tracks are getting continuously pumped into the veins of the media and radio, a movement of much complexity and rooted deep with culture stemming from hip-hop of the late 90's and early 2000's has been boiling in the self proclaimed land of, "Flexico", which will be identified in the interview to come. I was able to ask a few questions to artist Black Kray and fellow Goth Money Records labelmate Marcy Mane, or MFK, identifying everything from their strict beliefs and borderline religion regarding cellphone service and preferences, to Kray appearing in a Miley Cyrus music video.
the art they produce of brilliant lo-fi, at times seemingly delusional tracks deserves recognition, as well as praise for making way for the recent explosion of lo-fi music video releases.
before we venture into the interview, I invite you to enter the unique world of Goth Money and join them in a prior interview/documentary style film here (as well as above) to further understand the culture they inhabit.
as well, here is a link to their most recent collaborative release, "Tech Palms Vol. 2", free of charge.
specifically, check out the single, "yung 6 speed", the trap injected single for Tech Palms Vol. 2.
