On this project, ByLwansta finds himself faced/tasked with the duties of a young adult, which require very mature decisions such as identifying with right and wrong. More specifically, ByLwansta identifies and challenges the idea of conforming, particularly in music, to a specific and popular format and formula for a successful music career.
He finds himself often challenging what has been considered a “working formula” for how to get “into the game” by neglecting the popular style and known formula for such, in favour of one that isn’t very style specific, but rather what he wants and only what he wants to do.
ByLwansta tackles the mood at hand using a style he’s very popularly known for, in an aggressive and brutally honest manner, a style he established himself with on earlier works such 2014’s “NORMVL” Mixtape. Although having grown in years, we are still met by a very introspective and a bit selfish ByLwansta who raps was is on his mind.
“…It will be depicted graphically with “Your” as in “belonging to you”, AND “You’re” as in “You are”, the apostrophe and the “e” will be greyed out a bit. This refers to You’re Absolutely Right as in “Yeah man, I totally agree with you, I should change my sound and adapt to what the current sound is” and most importantly Your Absolutely Right as YOUR OWN idea of what is “absolutely right” which takes us back to the concept and definition of NORMVL..”
