A lot of times when you question the system we live in, the system itself will be quick to discredit you, or even worse label you as Craazy. What’s really Craazy is perhaps the conditions our communities live under and the way the government controls us. Now thats Craazy.

‘WINTER’: This freezer burner is the cold heat from C-Rayz Walz, that should thaw that iced out poppy cock rappers be spillin off they igloo something lava like. This song is street.
Speaking of street… We shot (insert Raekwon “BLAW!” gunshot noise here) this video in the hood on the single ONE and ONLY day it snowed in NYC this year. I wonder how many other artist shot a video that day.
Grungcake and Grey Sky Appeal were on deck to make moves and get this shoot done in 6 hours.
Even on the hottest day of the summer it’s a cold world out there.
