I'd like to tell y'all a story. Fifteen years ago, actually, to the day, I developed a distaste for the direction of mainstream hip-hop. The beats sounded the same, there wasn't a message, and gimmicks came left and right. Violence and decadence was glorified even more so, instead of it being used for survival.
At the same time, I became a student of film. I grew to love samurai films more, not just for their swordplay, but for their thematic tones and their character development.
For fifteen years, I've written this story, more than Stormcaller, No Peace under Heaven, and Arcanacraft. Working on XOGENASYS gave me what I needed: confidence to finally move forth with this series.
So my followers, allow me to reintroduce you all to Samuraidaz: The Mixtape, with art by Erwin Prasetya.
