It’s not a political record as much as a “social record”… this record is called “Burn” because I feel that social insitutions are failing people. Trapboy talk: ‘schools ain’t doing sh*t for me. jails and police ain’t doing sh*t for me. All these things that profit from me are failing.‘ So I did something about it…
