A wise man told me the first step towards change is awareness, the second step is acceptance
Are you aware of the changes that are happening around you? Are you willing to accept the change that is upon us? — Charlamagne Tha God
Fresh off a sold out event with Riff Raff, 19 year old rapper, Bivienni, connects with us to share his message in the form of his 24-minute debut project “Everflowing Meditation”. Bivienni describes his freshman effort, “I believe it’s an authentic piece of beautiful art. I wanted to piece a plethora of different emotions together to create a dynamic spectrum of what human beings may be feeling or going through, ultimately creating something that someone happy/broken/depressed/angry can relate to and feel less alone/more complete and part of the world as a citizen of being.” [420?] Evidently, this ambitious endeavor peaked our interest and we just had to find out more:
1. What’s your favorite word?
I fuck with the word “fresh” a lot. Somethin’ can’t be fresh and not dope too, ya feel? Plus, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is a religion anyways.
2. What’s your favorite drug?
Dank Earth on a daily, homie. Indiana needs to legalize that shit ASAP.
3. What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
Lana Del Rey turns me on emotionally because holy fuck, just listen to them angelic golden tones in her vocals. Her art is what, to me, is the perfect idea of a female artist. The way she delivers what she says is unlike anything I have heard before, and I respect the hell out of it. I would have taken Lizzie Grant to prom.
4. What job would you NEVER want to do?
I’d never want to be an audio engineer or whatever who is open to work with anyone and everyone. Imagine having to sit and listen to a bunch of shitty, to my liking, music for hours at a time… and on top of that, you have to seem like you vibe and fuck with it. Nawh, my creative shit wouldn’t be able to flow under faulty vibrations. Some people who’d come in may be too clownin’ and I wouldn’t be able to fuck with it like that, I’m too honest. That’s why I hate when people show me their stuff and I just can’t like it at all, can’t just lie and tell them how fire it is.
5. If God exists, what would you like to hear him say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
He’d say some fly shit like, “now I have proof that God exists.” I’d nod and ask if he wanted to smoke some blunts with ya boy.
The Ghetto was a physical manifestation of hate
And a place where ethnicity determines your placement
A place that defines your station
Remind you niggas your place is the basement
White people in the attic
Niggas selling dope, White people is the addicts
White folks act like they ain’t show us how to traffic
All that dope to China, you don’t call that trappin’?
