About this mix
A small mix of unreleased material, collected from 2012-2016 by me and other East Coast artists I love, specifically ones who musically exploit Banjee Realness. I mean all definitions of the word 'banjee' – new and old – but mainly progressive or androgynous, and definitely black. This is inclusive of, but not exclusive to, homosexuality and/or performances of masculinity. A few of these artists are fish and cunts, but equally authentic and unique in their personalities, united by overcoming first world disenfranchisement.
