In this episode I ask Blueprint a bunch of specific questions, so to give you some context before you listen to this podcast, go over to Blueprint’s Bandcamp page (see link below) to check out his project Vigilante Genesis.
It’s the concept album of all concept albums.
On a style tip, what separates this rap album from most is that it has zero hooks, which brings the listener’s focus directly to the story telling. And dayum, how the characters develop and the tension builds. It’s set in a comic book world where drones talk and revenge is real, where the lines of morality blur and vendettas become obsessions. In this world, doing the right thing just might get you killed. The post-apocalyptic world of Vigilante Genesis is so futuristic yet so present day and so relevant to right now. And if that’s not enough icing on the cake to make you bite down, the entire album is produced by the legendary, Aesop Rock.
If that's not enough, we also talk about:
How to stay focused with regards to song writing
How to tour in markets that will respond to your art
How to get good at something you’re not already
How to develop a weekly campaign for a project release
and how to think like an entrepreneur
Thanks for listening!
