[Hiphopplaya] Fana - 'FANAttitude' Interview

[T/N: Bear with me the typos and incorrect grammar that may appear in this lengthy interview. My eyes feel like popping out but I wanted to push this out before I never get the chance to (I've had it on hostage in my drafts for 10 days now...). On an off note, I'm not sure if I want to mull over doing more lengthy translations but I'll try if I get good responses. I'll also come back sometime this week to edit the errors on this interview but enjoy!]

Arriving an hour before the interview, we were able to feel through the sense of responsibility held in his words in the duration of the interview of how he embodies the title of his album, "FANAttitude," a combination of the words 'FANA' and 'attitude.' If you want to know more about Fana's attitude, listen to his album and read the interview. A boy not afraid to look ustp at the sky; you can think of his smiling face whilst reading the interview in our delightful yet deep conversation we were able to hvae with him, as he had nothing to hide. 

HHP: How did you lose weight?
Fana: I think it was like this, in that I just lived life. I'd walk from my old house which was located in Gwangmyeong all the way to Hongdae.

HHP: Isn't that really far?
Fana:&nbspIt takes 3 hours and that was during the time where I'd live life drinking a lot. I'd walk all the way to Hongdae to drink and walk home, and so I repeated this lifestyle...nowadays I don't so much anymore. I actually gained more weight than then so I was embarrassed when the topic of my weight loss made it to the press. 

HHP: If you look at the articles online, they label you as 'good looking rapper.' Do you often get overwhelmed by this?
Fana: It's very overwhelming. 

HHP: You released an album after 4 years since 2009, but you have been actively promoting in the meantime. 
Fana: I'm not sure if it was noticed, but I did work very hard.

HHP: Are you currently housed under a label?
Fana: No, I'm not. If I did, then you can call 'The Ugly Junction' one. 

HHP: We heard that you joined the crew Buck Wilds back in June, however there seem to be a lot who may have not known.
Fana: Yes, a lot of people might not know. It's still vague if I really joined or not (laughs). I joined because I lost in a game of darts. 

HHP: A game?
Fana: Yes, J-Tong had told Ddolbae, a member of Buck Wilds, to coax 'Fresh Avenue' to join Buck Wilds. Honestly, I had no thoughts of joining. At the time, I was drinking and beside me was a dartboard so we ended up playing a game of darts, betting that I would join if he (Ddolbae) won. Because I knew of his dart skills prior to our match, I thought of how there'd be no way that I'd lose. Maybe it's because Ddolbae had a goal in mind, but he ended up hitting the S-Bull four times straight.  

HHP: (Laughs) So you really kept your promise?

Fana: Yes, that's why I joined (laughs).

HHP: So DJ Wegun just happened to follow and join?
Fana: Wegun said on that day that if I joined, he'd join too so he ended up following along.

HHP: So are you the oldest member in Buck Wilds currently?
Fana: Yes, that's right. There's also Kirin who joined recently so we're the two oldest members from what I recall.

HHP: The members of Buck Wilds participated in your bonus track for the album. So you haven't been working on the album for a long time then, correct?
Fana:  Yes, that's right. the 'Show StopperS Remix' was only revealed with the Buck Wilds members' part but other artists such as Rico of Daze Alive Music, winner Jackee.Y of the 'GALMIGHTY' auditions also participated in the track. However, in the process of editing, we found that their parts didn't fit so the two were cut off and the track ended up becoming a Buck Wilds remix. Also, Vida Loca, the producer of the track, happened to be a member of Buck Wilds as well. 

HHP: So were you originally intending on a different remix version?
Fana: No, there were no intentions like that. The remix just happened to get into the track list. After production, I listened to the album overall and it was a total of 40 minutes long. For those who listened to the tracks digitally, you might all have thought that it was short as well. So in thinking of how short it seemed, I thought of adding another track and wanted to make the track an exclusive for the CD only. Also, I actually dislike tracks with multiple people so rather than releasing it digitally, I decided to only have it released in the CD. 

HHP: You also featured in the show 'Show Me the Money' as of recently. How did you come across featuring on the show? 
Fana: Yes, I received a call from Mad Clown. He told me how he was supposed to compete with Lexy but due to her leaving the show, he could use another featuring and with the track being fitting with my style, he decided to give me a call. Also at the time, Mad Clown was on the same team as MC Meta and since Mad Clown was a former friend within Soul Company as well as MC Meta being a senior I respected and have known when I was younger for 10 years now, I debated a lot with myself since I didn't necessarily have a good relationship with 'Show Me the Money' either. So I began asking those around me, majority of them responding back to me with questions of why I'd go on such show but Ddolbae was the one who told me that aside everything, I should take up the opportunity with a pure business mentality. So as a result, I went on the show and because of the show, I prolonged the release date of my album as well. 

HHP: There were a lot of responses showing how you put on a good performance. How did you feel?

Fana: I honestly didn't look for responses. I just thought to myself of how I should work on my facial expressions better. On scene as well as on broadcast, I practically hypnotized myself to work on my facial expressions but right before going on stage to perform, I had spilled water on my clothes. I was initially supposed to be on the crane to perform but due to the initial shock of having spilled water on myself, I went on the crane and hurriedly tried to dry off the water before my performance so I just performed how I normally did, which was with a lot of effort. With effort, it shows on my facial expression so all I thought about this performance was how I should have worked on that better (laughs).

HHP: In the meantime, you were on broadcast with Fresh Avenue as well as hosting your 'The Ugly Junction Live' shows for a while now. We'll ask about each of them. How did you come across doing broadcasts on Fresh Avenue?
Fana: Originally it was DJ Wegun who was doing a mix broadcast but seeing as there were 10 guests watching, he decided he needed guests and that was when I went on, which was also when it shot up. That is, the ratings for the broadcast. So with the hits it got, I went on several times which led me to sit around all the time hanging out...yes, that's how it started.

HHP: There were a lot of issues surrounding the broadcasts of Fresh Avenue, with topics of disbandment of Soul Company, you being recruited by 'Show Me the Money,' and bringing up Mad Clown in the Fresh Avenue Awards.
Fana: He wasn't someone that was brought up just then, because Mad Clown was brought up all the time. We don't hide our words on our broadcasts as we're straightforward with our thoughts. Even with our issues with Soul Company, we said it then and there as well as the issue surrounding 'Show Me the Money.' Whenever an issue surfaced, we said it without hesitation.

HHP: There were videos taken by you yourself labeled 'Goblin Rush.'
Fana: In college, I was a mass communications major and I ended up learning video editing during the quarter I was graduating since I never went to school nor studied efficiently. Anyway, everyone around me was swamped with contents and because it would be a waste to let them rot, I bought a camcorder and started recording. But as of right now, I'm actually really behind on those videos and I have about a half year's worth of terms but I haven't been able to release them due to being busy.

HHP: You also released a video relating to Soul Company and it seemed that you filmed it last winter. 
Fana: Yes, I think I have a term up till there so I release recent ones sometimes.

HHP: So you started 'TUJL' since Soul Company. How did you start this up then?
Fana: I first thought of it in 2009 and from 2007 to 2009, my income as well as popularity was so-so then and it was during the time that Soul Company was soaring high up. They were at a position where no one could compare at all. Despite the label growing, even then and now, I still never had big thoughts on promoting. The label was expanding more than I had wanted and so I thought of something I could promote in by myself, which was how I thought of 'The Ugly Junction' and I believed it to be something I can take care of by myself. And so in the following year in August, I opened doors through 'TUJL' for the very first time. 

HHP: Coming back to ‘TUJL’ in present time, I want to say that it's really fun. Whether it's the World Soccer TUJL 11 competition, the Gwangju performance (TUJL 22, A Lavish Vacation), and the 'GALMIGHTY' auditions which centralized female rookie hip hop musicians. Your planning stands out in many ways through the examples listed above. Do you plan all these yourself? 
Fana: Yes, I think of all the ideas, overview them, direct, recruit, and draw the poster myself.  

HHP: That's amazing. Which performance was most memorable for you?
Fana: It had to be the World Soccer competition. Pento had one the match but we plan on hosting another competition. 

HHP: As mentioned before, the 'GALMIGHTY' auditions was a very unique case. How did you come across planning that?
Fana: Auditions weren't the first idea that I thought of. At first, I had wanted to plan a performance centered around female musicians and in midst of planning, the idea of auditions came into mind and thought, "Why not have female musicians audition?" The thing about auditions was that there's so many out there and with accepting both male and female, we thought there would be too many participants as well.

HHP: We heard that the responses were good and that a lot of female rookie musicians had participated as well. 
Fana: Yes. Although the participants who copied rap styles were all eliminated later on but including those participants, there were over 70 teams that joined which surprised me. We thought that at most there would be 30 teams but seeing the turnout, we found it very encouraging. 

HHP: How did your production go with the winner of the auditions, Jackee.Y?
Fana: The prize for winning the auditions was a guaranteed single with G-Slow and I really want to put a single out for her but she's also very driven. I know I'm not in a position to rush her but...I'm also at a point where I'm just feeding her attention. I really want to help her release a single as soon as possible. 

HHP: While carrying out your performance, you collaborated with Burn Intense as well and for your album title track, you also collaborated with CONVERSE. How did you come about your collaboration this time? 
Fana: Honestly, I have to say Ddolbae's story for this. Although I am someone who is pursuing in music and have planned events before, I'm not someone who is competent in terms of business in my opinion. Ddolbae is a friend who has worked in that route and as he discharged from the military, he decided that he wanted to start it up again in finding his place through his studies, which is why we began working together. In the case of Burn Intense, it was through his proposal letter and same goes for Converse. To be honest, 'Shoestring Blues' wasn't the title track. It was through listening to the track with Ddolbae that he told me, "We could do something with this" so he began writing a lot of proposal letters. In midst of all of them, Converse was on the roster also and according to a representative from their end, they seemed to have thought that it matched with our end as well, which is how we began working together. 

HHP: We saw that Ddolbae helped you out a lot with the promotions for this album. Could you give us a second to introduce who he is?
Fana: He looks a lot like the actor Yoo Toong (laughs). He was a former CEO of King the Records, worked under J2 Entertainment, is a junior of my school, and is now preparing to work in an agency. He came across working in this field after having been a staff of Soul Company. 

HHP: You also took on another collaboration with Jangkoal. How did you come across working together?
Fana: I was constantly trying to recruit someone to help out on the artwork for the album and Jtong had told me about how he had purchased an artwork from Jangkoal to hang at South Town. Seeing the artwork, Ddolbae threw out the idea of possibly working with the artist and after having seen his artwork on his blog, I decided to give him a call to work together. 

HHP: What was Jangkoal's response in your offer?
Fana: I think he was very optimistic about it. I let him listen to the album first and he liked it; he likes the track 'Gum' a lot.

HHP: So it's alright for us to assume that you've made this album for nearly 4 years, correct?
Fana: Yes, although the entire four years wasn't necessarily dedicated to making the album, but it's close enough.

HHP: Was there a reason as to why it took so long?
Fana: There's a lot of complicated events that mix in with the reasoning. Hrm...what should I say first...first off, after finishing the production for [FANATIC], the [FANAttitude] album wasn't necessarily the next runner up that I worked on. I was working on an album titled [FANAlyze] and in the midst of working on it, the [FANAttitude] production coincided, which caused somewhat of a delay...also, I had issues with my prior label, my health wasn't at its best, and I had to graduate. I had about 2 years till graduation and my parents really wanted to me to graduate. There were a lot of work invovled in planning for 'The Ugly Junction' as well. Of course, it was something I was doing because I enjoyed it however, it was because of it that I couldn't get a grip of myself. Swamped in everything, I couldn't focus on working on my albums and to be quite honest, my drive for working on them was lost as well. I had no desire to put out albums which was why it took so long. 

HHP: The tracks you put in the album were tracks you either released as singles or sung at performances. So does this mean that for your album [FANAlyze], you worked on it separately from this release? 
Fana: The album name [FANAlyze] derived from a combination of the two words "FANA" and "Analyze." With [FANAlyze], I pushed for more of a brighter feel. Although nothing was confirmed, 'FANAttitude' was actually a track for [FANAlyze] as it was the first track I had written lyrics for off the album. If I explain this in further detail, it's that I wanted to make [FANAlyze] an album where I analyze a part of myself. I decided to start off with the theme of the path I walked on and my attitude towards life which eventually led to to working on 'FANAttitude.' But in midst of writing lyrics, I was continually reminded of the theme of my direction and attitude so I thought, why not make an album based off of this wholly so that's when I really began working on the album. The reason why I released a single was because I had expected dates of releases for them. In the album [FANAttitude], the first six tracks were all worked on chronologically. I wrote most of the lyrics in April of 2010. In the case of 'Full Speed Ahead,' I sang it as a new song in the first show for 'TUJL' and since I received a good response for it, I made a promise to the audience that day that I'll release it officially sometime in the future. So in planning for the upcoming 'TUJL' shows, I thought about how there should be a highlight within each show and that was to hopefully release a new track which led to the second show for 'TUJL' being a release showcase for 'Harmony' and 'What if I' being a celebratory track for my 10,000th day. 

HHP: So did you choose what fit the best out of what you produced? 

Fana: Yes. I tend to write up a lot of lyrics beforehand. In knowing the theme of the album, I began producing based off of what I already had in my collection and picking from there what matched the theme. 

HHP: We heard you already have lyrics to the sequel album. Will this be for [FANAlyze]?
Fana: No. This...this is something I'm revealing for Hiphopplaya first in this interview but the next album is titled 'FANAconda.' There's going to be a lot of stronger sounding music in that album.

HHP: Ah! Then the album is a combination of the words "FANA" and "Anaconda." By strong, do you mean hardcore? 
Fana: I was honestly debating between two options but because this is an issue with my indecisiveness, I can't tell you right away but I have a feeling that it'll be released really soon. 

HHP: As you said before, you write up your lyrics beforehand but you invest a lot of time receiving songs. How long does it normally take you to receive them?

Fana: Honestly, this album isn't 100% of what I had envisioned from the beginning, however I did release it because it did make it to the level where I was at least satisfied with it. But when it comes to productions, I found it that producers had difficulty with me writing lyrics prior to receiving the track. Since this production is also a form of art, I can't speak objectively of it as it's something abstract, so I think that's why it takes long. 

HHP: On Soriheda's Twitter, he wrote that The Quiett was respectable (everyone laughs). So you tend to request beats after writing lyrics as opposed to writing lyrics when you receive a beat?
Fana: Yes, I request them most of the time. With the exclusion of several tracks, I produced based off of this method for majority of them, however surprisingly enough I wrote lyrics based off of beats more than I normally do. Examples of this were 'Move Again,' 'Remove Again,' and 'B.A.M.' Of course, 'Show StopperS Remix' was definitely based off of a beat already given. That's about it.

HHP: We heard that you purposely had the members of Soul Company participate in the [FANATIC] album, however you worked alone on this recent album. Was there a special reason for that?
Fana: Just because. It was an official album with my name on the line and of course I did receive help in the areas I needed but I felt that with the areas that I could work on, I found myself responsible for it. There is a slight regret I have with the [FANATIC] album and it was with the track 'Brutal Treatment (Part I) featuring The Quiett and Kebee. At the time, Kebee, The Quiett, and I were the members of Soul Company who were cast the most for performances. So because we had to have a track with all 3 members in it, the track was...not necessarily pressure but a reflection of what the label had wanted. If I could toss in an anecdote to this, you can see that we listed that track as "Part I" of 'Brutal Treatment." However, we had actually planned on working on a "Part II." There was a Hiphopplaya radio video where I rapped with Kebee and the part I rapped was actually a verse off of 'Brutal Treatment (Part II).' It was 2010 and at the time I was preparing an album for the next term. Since the first part had 2 rappers featuring in the track, I thought likewise for the second part and so out of the rookies in the scene at the time, I was thinking of recruiting Zico and Park Kyung, who were a part of 'BLOCKBUSTER' then. Of course, the production itself fell apart and although I haven't told him due to working on the [FANAttitude] album, I do have thoughts in wanting to work with him sometime, as I'm under the same crew (Buck Wilds) as Zico and have met Park Kyung recently at a performance also. 

HHP: Is there a rookie you'd like to work with as of recently?
Fana: I'm not sure. To be honest, I'd say rap is my forte so there's no one I'd want to work with through my personal production...hrm...I honestly think there's no one I want to work with. (Everyone erupts into laughter) Although there are a lot of people I'd like to have on stage. With time passing by, there are a lot of people entering the scene who are just as talented. Since 'TUJL' is one of my personal productions, I plan on introducing a lot of rookies. I hope a lot of people can cheer for them when they do come out on stage.

HHP: Up until your last album, you worked with The Quiett a lot, however there are no beats from The Quiett in this album. 
Fana: This is actually a very simple situation if you look at it. I had actually still wanted to use beats from The Quiett so I asked him but during the time I was working on [FANAttitude], he wasn't writing any songs. That was around 2010 or 2011 so that's why there's no tracks made by him in the album. 

HHP: You seem to hang out with the Soul Company members often. How is everyone doing nowadays? 
Fana: I honestly don't see them that often (laughs). There aren't many cases where I hit them up, however there are a few I tend to see more often than others, which includes Wegun as a given or Vida Loca and Jerry.k. To be quite honest, when the news of the label disbanding hit the fan, we tried to not act like it but there was a case of discomfort that we all felt with one another. This was something I felt as well. Although I have spoken about the issue without any hesitation on broadcast, but the problem with me speaking my mind is that this means that my opinion grows bigger than the opinions of others. This was why I didn't like anything that involved Soul Company but nowadays, I don't really think much about it. As I grew older, I became more if I run into them, I'll at least say hello. 

HHP: Your title track is called 'Shoestring Blues.' Did it become your title track due to the collaborations?
Fana: There was no intention of choosing 'Shoestring Blues' as my title track. In being tossed back and forth among different producers, 'Shoestring Blues' transformed into several different tracks. There was no intention of having the track be bright as it is now. Anyway, in midst of the track being passed around, I was introduced to Kimparkchella for the first time in the beginning of this year, and the track it is today is a result of our meeting. Although the track is a lot different from the blueprint I had initially planned out, I received endless recommendations to make this as the title track from music distributors as well as Ddolbae. 

HHP: Your track gives off a band vibe to it. Was that originally intended?
Fana: I didn't necessarily have a band vibe in mind but that I wanted tracks with dynamics. I normally just write the verse first when it comes to composing but with this track in particular, I wrote the chorus instead. What I had originally planned was that during the line "Again after tying my shoes," I killed the pace but when I say "Stand up," that's when the dynamics step in, however a lot of the producers had troubles with this part in particular. Even if I tried, none of them liked it. Prior to this event, I had originally received a track from G-Slow, one being calm track while the other being a gloomy track. In that time, I had worked with Kimparkchella so I chose him because it was fun, not because of a certain vibe I was aiming for. 

HHP: We saw that the guitar was done by Kimparkchella. Do you plan on any other live sessions?
Fana: Yes, most likely when it's my own show, I'll have a live band perform with me. Right now we're in the process of recruiting a band. 

HHP: So is it something that we can see at the next 'TUJL' show? 
Fana: Yes, probably in the next 'TUJL' show, which is in mid-September. I plan on planning it as a release showcase. Since I have to focus on the performance aspect more than others as well as work with the band, I needed more time to practice, which is why I reserved the date a bit later than I normally would. I am also considering on performing with the members of Buck Wilds but I'd have to ask them. It'd probably be the first time I'd perform 'Show StopperS Remix' live. 

HHP: Your music video caused a lot of press since this was the first time you appeared in your own music video. 
Fana: That's right, since it was also the first time I filmed a music video even. In preparing for this album, the first thing I said to Ddolbae was that I'm going to do everything I could with this upcoming promotion. "Let's do everything I can, of course everything that my bank account allows." (Everyone laughs) So the music video was included with this. I was introduced to the PRODUCT 9OOD'S team, who also filmed the 'FLY' music video for Geeks. Since it was my first time filming a music video, I wasn't sure how the filming would roll out but I ended up just leaving it entirely up to them. They basically told me that the music video would be pictured out in this certain way and I would recruit certain people for that's how the music video filming rolled out. Of course, to the people I had recruited for the music video, I didn't tell them the exact details of the music video. I just bribed them with a pair of Converse. 

HHP: Then their pay was in Converse? (laughs)
Fana: Yes, that's right (laughs). 

HHP: It's not just because of 'Shoestring Blues' but I feel that your album overall has a brighter feel to it. 
Fana: I normally don't like to give off the same feel to the sequel from the original work. I find it that for me, it holds no meaning and a small thing like that actually had a great effect on me. With this album in particular, I thought about how I should make an album of "conscious rap." If I had depended on vibes with [FANATIC], I thought of how I needed to focus on delivery of the rap a bit more with this album, which is why I focused on composing tracks to meet with those standards. 

HHP: In your previous album, you composed your album in a W form. How did you compose your album this time?
Fana: This time, I didn't have a specific form in mind as I worked on the tracks according to the order they were placed on the tracklist. Although the order isn't necessarily all in order, from the first to the sixth track, I did work on them chronologically. I received 'Shoestring Blues' and 'FANAttitude' around the same time and with the seventh and tenth track, I also received them around the same time, so you can see it as I worked on those tracks simultaneously. For 'What if I,' it's the track that stands out the most out of the album, which is why I placed it last and I find it that it perfected the album in a way. Hearing from my colleagues that the composition of this album was perfect makes me happy. 

HHP: You seem to continue in composing your lyrics in identical consonant and vowel structure. If you look at other musicians nowadays, the style has changed a lot. Do you plan on attempting a different style?

Fana: I never thought of that once. Because this writing technique has become habitual for me, I normally don't talk about identical or similar consonant and vowel structures anymore. I don't feel the need to tell people anymore about how I produce based off of this theory. Anyway, I think I'm going to continue what I've done before. 

HHP: We get the impression that the first and second tracks 'Move Again' and 'Remove Again' are continuations from one another. 
Fana: I received those two tracks at the same time as well. Originally, those two tracks were stuck together. What I mean by that is that in the track 'Move Again,' the last line says, "The fanaticism of your existence also" and coincides when the second track starts to play. With the CD, there were no problems but when it came to digital releases, the music distributor said that in remastering the tracks, the beginning and ends to the respective tracks will be cut off so instead of having them be cut, I thought it'd be best to have them as their own separate tracks.

HHP: Like your performance for 'The Guiding Star,' you seem to always have a miscellaneous track you perform. How come you don't include these in your album? 
Fana: For 'The Guiding Star,' that...was first sung at the 7th show for 'TUJL.' At the time, it was some kind of promise with the people who came out to the show. I honestly didn't say that with much thought put into it. I simply asked the crowd, "Should I make this a track exclusive for 'TUJL'?" to which everyone agreed. So this is why I never made it into an official track. Even if I did, it didn't fit the music concept with this album so I wouldn't have put it in anyway. 

HHP: You seem to keep your word really well, even with the little things that are said. 
Fana: I don't want to live with the burden with not keeping my promise with the people who were there that day. 

HHP: You seem to be on Twitter often than before now. 
Fana: I used to use a 2G phone but as of recently, I purchased an iPad. In purchasing an iPad, I began to use Twitter more frequently. Because of the recent luck I had, I gained a lot of followers, which also resulted in a lot of tweets with fan arts that I retweet all of. Oh Jieun noona calls me a "retweet monster" and others call me the "ruler of the night" (laughs). This is why I purposely retweet everything at a time where there aren't a lot of people on Twitter. 

HHP: You communicate with your fans a lot it seems. Do you have any memorable tweets that you received from fans?
Fana: I don't receive diverse feedback so there aren't much that are memorable...out of the tweets however, I tend to like the ones that involve then emotions people felt through certain parts from my lyrics; the tweets that seem to be able to dig right into the core of the song. 

HHP: Do you listen to a lot of international music?
Fana: I'm not very up-to-date with the trends in rap, and trap music doesn't really suit my sensibility. I listen to more of old Korean folk and blues consistently. The music I've listened to most was my own music. 

HHP: Really?
Fana: Yes, I'm the biggest fan of myself.

HHP: Then as a fan yourself, what was your favorite track from this album? (laughs)
Fana: Hrm...that's very difficult to answer. I think it'd have to be 'What if I.' Everyone tells me that once they listen to it, it becomes their favorite track from the album. 

HHP: You said you had wanted to talk about the attitude you had towards this album. How would you describe that in words? 
Fana: It's kind of hard to explain with every track...but in regards to the album overall, I would say that it reflects the path I lived as well as  the guidelines I want to live by in the future. Also, it's an album that I worked hard on so that it can become a guide that maybe others can live by as well. 

HHP: If there's anything else you'd like to say, feel free to tell us. 
Fana: Because 'Shoestring Blues' is a very unique track, a lot of people will take it in differently from how they approach it. I think a lot of people may think it was a lucky strike that it was fitting with the other productions I had meshed with, however I beg to differ. I think the track shines more when you listen to [FANAttitude] as a whole, which is why I ask everyone to listen to it altogether. I really focused a lot on the details in the rap as well as the dynamics. I hope everyone will anticipate the upcoming album [FANAconda] as well. Thank you.
