This song reminds us that TRUE friendship is not about being perfect or always saying the right thing but being there for each other through the good times and the bad.

Love is love – no matter how people identify or look, I believe there is a unique and beautiful love story out there for all of us.”

His first project since 2021’s buzzy Faygo Baby EP, 66689 Blvd Prequel, finds Kipp at the height of powers.

From scenes of the culture shock that comes from traveling to the West Coast for the first time after only ever knowing East Cleveland to raps about escaping his job, poverty, and selfishness, 66689 Blvd Prequel is the start of an ego death that will come in the album’s sequel.

INJI explains: “I started this project in my dorm room, with two of my best friends from college, while trying to finish a finance degree. I had about 40 followers on TikTok and zero expectation that anyone would ever hear what I was writing. That’s why the songs are so hilariously real, and ridiculously me. I wrote like no one was listening, no one was. I think it’s that originality and honesty of the songs that people related to. This EP is meant to make you feel happier, more energized, more confident and optimistic than you felt before you listened to it. It’s meant to make you giggle, it’s meant to put a smile on your face, it’s meant for you to memorize and scream the lyrics and jump around in your bedroom.

There could be a fight at a cookout and then you hear ‘Before I Let Go’ and everybody is now doing the electric slide. That’s my energy.”

A hunting breed still bound to its folk’s leash, and a bird, gentle and free,” Madds Buckley shares with us. “‘DogBird’ is a queer story at its core, about loving someone while fighting your upbringing, but is truly for anyone who’s ever become their own worst fear: hurting the one you love most.”

Hood comments, “Neon Skies is about seeing someone for the first time but it feels like you won’t ever see them again. The main thing I compared this to was seeing the Northern Lights. It’s such a beautiful sight but you most likely will only see it once in your lifetime, if you’re lucky. We’ve all had that one day or night with someone out of nowhere, but you never speak to them anymore. You will always remember the time you spent with them though. It’s like you saw the Northern Lights.”
