'The "Spirit Animal Club House" is the home you enter when you've found yourself suddenly and heavily struggling to continue along The Path.
Where you runaway to when your homies pass away, and your father's heart is decaying from stress & cigarettes, and your grandmother is fighting pneumonia, and your co-worker gets cancer.
It's where you lay your fears to rest, where you bury your demons, wrestle your vices, and scream your complaints into hallways. Air the body out. Empty the vessel, scrub its nooks and crannies, wipe away the dust.
It exists to house you & cleanse you on your journey.
Use it only when necessary.
The twisted webs this existence brings can tangle and ensnare for certain but, as a wise man once told me,
"It's not the struggles that define you, it's what you make of those struggles. It's not the beatings the world throws at you that will hold you back, but whether or not you've made up your mind to give in and be beaten. Don't lie down, stand. Hold your guard. Strike only when necessary and refuse to be knocked down."
.......when you leave the Club House, lock the back door.'

When I'm asked what my taste in hip-hop is, I think I can only point to this record in answer. There are few projects that I've found as distinctive as this one. It's up there with To Pimp a Butterfly, Madvillainy, and Aquemini. frankejanke
