LOWERCASE TAPE is more than an album. It’s not a project that was meant just for directories. It’s not a conglomerate of dyl. and labelmates chasing one, flat narrative through music. The album is not even a frivolous mixtape of random tracks that dyl. thought just needed to be released.
LOWERCASE TAPE is art.
It’s the end of an artistic journey. It’s the culmination of texts, calls, recordings, samples, trips, bars, thoughts, and ultimately of who Christ has compelled nobigdyl. to be. The project is just simply great. It’s spontaneous, bouncy, diverse, deep, lyrical, and it’s classic, authentic nobigdyl. It was long-awaited, much anticipated, and truly, now, celebrated. If you haven’t heard it by now, please, I beg you… do yourself the favor. This is not the creation of the album or the request of the fans. This is truly the art of the mixtape. Don’t take my word for it… take nobigdyl.’s word for it:
I DON’T MAKE MUSIC JUST TO MAKE IT. I BELIEVE IN THE POWER + ARTFORM OF HIP HOP — ITS ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE MESSAGES + SHAPE CULTURE + PEOPLE. I RESPECT THE SLOW PROCESS OF PERFECTING THE CRAFT. SOMETIMES THE WAY FORWARD IS TO RETRACE THE METHODS OF THOSE BEFORE YOU #NOV8 PIC.TWITTER.COM/87EQBDAJGS
