We live in a Time that’s uncertain about tomorrow, but is clear with what’s going on today.
I went back home to Binghamton last summer to see my folks and family. I had these “Lupe Fiasco Classics” looking glasses, but they were broken from when I was playing involuntary-catch with my nephew.
I had 2 types of scotch tape holding these things together, it was tragic. And my mother said I looked like a raggamuffin and she wasn’t having that. So she hooked her son up!
It wasn’t until I got my new frames and talked with my folks about things happening in life and the world, that I got the idea to make an album called ‘FRAMES’.
The concept was simple. When you’ve worn glasses for a while eventually you need a new prescription. Eyes get old and foggy over time, so new glasses with a new new prescription for your changing vision is a must.
And when you finally get that new pair, it feels like you’re seeing the world for the first time all over again. Imagine, putting something on that instantly adds clarity to what you’re looking at. What appeared fuzzy is now sharp and easily identified.
And therein lies the theme of ‘FRAMES’. Changing your perspectives to see the world and life clearer. And what’s interesting to know, is throughout the process of making the album and promoting it after, I learned something.
Making the FRAMES isn’t the hard part. Getting people to trust you and try them on is. And not for nothing, one look at the world today and what’s happening globally, and I can’t blame anyone for being hesitant in trusting someone else with their vision.
