I got a mixed feeling about this. Nas (& his pops Olu Dara) in a Gap ad?.... But times change, no more hardcore rap, no more gangsta rap, no trap, no crunk, no conscious, no revolutionary rap. All that's left is pop. Pop rap and more pop.

Light bulb behind it: "Frames of Invincibility" is the title of the EP, so immediately I thought of art frames. Art frames are used to 'upgrade the dopeness of the art within' so in this case, the EP is the frame of GreyTone (rapper) & GeraldHatesWednesdays (producer). I didn't want a simple frame as a cover so I went abstract and took "Invincibility". It's a unbreakable frame for SG, hence the multiple color frames representing the multi-layered sound, style, lyrics, beats and message they convey.
It was a common drink crew night. Getting drunk, hitting on girls, talking bs. Then, two of them talked about Hip Hop and said "Hey, I can rap" and the other one said "Hey, I make beats" and so, SG Grey Days was born.
Here's a preview for their EP. NY boom bap, retro video game throw back, love for Hip Hop, all things fresh. Stay tuned!
