Featuring the efficient, creative and visionary mixes, production, scratches and arrangements of the mighty DJ Self Born. This album shines in a world of mediocre Hip-Hop, taking influences from classic Hip-Hop and mixing that with new dope beats, audio snippets and upfront rap magic, that tells a real story of the streets.
What is a plug ?
Households today are missing more and more fathers being present in their children’s lives. With that said, fatherly advice is either non-existent or supplemented by the mother’s best efforts. In distressed communities, a fatherless son seeking guidance from a man, unfortunately, can find that direction in the streets… usually from what we know as “a plug”. At that point, the PLUG replaces the DAD…
Following up his 2 successful projects, DJ Self Born has adapted the popular book “Rich Dad, Poor Dad”, by Robert Kiyosaki into a musical journey of young men figuring out life without resources or financial literacy.
- a term used to describe someone who is a resource for obtaining something
valuable that would otherwise be difficult to obtain.
- slang for a drug dealer, who supplies lesser drug dealers with their drugs. Also
referred to as a drug ‘connect’
