Westside Gravy presents a conscious rap project taking on the topics of racism, exploitation of artists of color, police brutality, and hate crimes against "ETHNIC" people. He draws on his personal experience, family experience, and ancestry to create vivid, powerful imagery through complex, creative lyrical storytelling regarding the disparities, divisions, and inequities that still exist in modern society. He raps over a diversity of beats utilizing a variety of flows to reflect the diversity of his background. Real rap about real issues.
