Your Bad Self

Micranots rapper I Self Devine finds clarity in 'Self Destruction'

 

Gentrification

Crime

Who are you?

Where are you?

 

Chantz is halting, but up to the challenge: "I don't do crime 'cause I don't have the money, resources, or time."

"You just got to iron it out," says Self, slapping his fist into his palm encouragingly.

Leaving the students to write their own songs, Self addresses the same topics outside, from Lake Street condofication to his own life of crime in the '80s to currently getting more involved in the community as his music grows less overtly revolutionary. So I have to ask: "Where are you?"

"I'm probably, like, up the mountain, in one of them little side pockets," he says. "Just taking inventory of where I've been so far."
