With their new album Respect Game Or Expect Flames set to hit stores on August 28th, Casual and J Rawls are now revealing the artwork and tracklist for the project. As Casual explains, the striking cover image has a deep symbolic meaning. “The burning Ankh represents new life rising from Nu, the primordial waters, the perfect darkness. We see the winged disk superimposed on the Ankh (life). Here Heru-Behutet (the winged disk) symbolizes protection. This cover represents the manifestation of life through divine process, wherein the being manifested is protected."
