Whatsup, its Von Pea. (I was asked to write something about my baby. haha…)
City For Sale is a breakup album. A relationship album. Instead of a woman its about my hometown…YOUR hometown…your old way of living. Growing apart from a place, from people, from who you once were. Because i’m from a currently gentrifying city that theme is on the surface of the album but the overall narrative is for any person that feels unfamiliar in a space that was currently familiar to them. This album is me finding my new comfort zone because I have to.
This City For Sale album is the first time I’ve produced an entire album on my own including making every beat. Even Donwill’s “One Word No Spaces” LP (which I’m credited as the producer) was co produced and co arranged by Donwill. Thats something we always wanted to do. City For Sale is another personal goal for me. I’ve been afraid to do an entire album alone until now….if this shit is wack its all my fault. With that said this is my calling card album. This is the one I will hopefully be known for when its all said and done.
