Grafh and the late DJ Shay begin Stop Calling Art Content with a powerful message – “when it comes to work created out of passion or artistic sensibility, calling it ‘content’ doesn’t do it justice. When you create art with passion, that’s probably the purest form of yourself that you can offer.”
The “Intro” track continues, saying, “Calling it ‘content’ just devalues that. Content kills art. Passion and content doesn’t live in the same house. Culture and content have nothing in common. Content has no soul. Content is all business. True art has always been much more than just content, and it always will be.”
The album comes in at just under 45 minutes, and includes features from Benny the Butcher on “Very Different,” Heem and Rick Hyde on “Promise,” and Chyi the Prynce and 3d Na’tee on “Slums.”
Earlier this afternoon, Grafh took to Instagram to share that Stop Calling Art Content is sitting at #17 on Apple Music.
“No radio or none of that, just street shxt & bars,” the 39-year-old captioned his post.
