The idea of the mixtape stems from the blaxploitation era of music most notably with influence from the film "The Mack". It also has a slight influence from Dr. Dre's "The Chronic" conceptually and production wise, giving listeners a laid back style of music that you can ride out to with hard thumping beats and smooth melodies.
Drapetomania, the darkest duo in the Mitten, takes you on a journey into the depths of their minds in their video single EEMNAA (pronunced eem-nah). With the help of Branch Out Collective compatriot Clavius Crates, the three emcees break into the headspace so many of us try to avoid on a daily basis, owning and sharing their own misguided thoughts with an honesty that shines like the setting sun in this video. Laced with the aura of haze and brews, these young men delve into the clouded spaces of mothers, slave ancestry, religion, self-destruction, and consciousness, blocked slightly by vaporous clouds and dark shades.
With production from Professor Megablown, EEMNAA is the beginning of 2013 for the tandem of Gen Pop and Big Walt, better known as Drapetomania.
