Wow. I just watched this. Laughed out loud at 11:34 and wanted to cry at 12:53, thinking about the disparity between an artist who pours their heart and soul into their art, and the kid with a communications degree from Pepperdine who can shelf the project and never let it see the light of day, taking home 6 figures while the artist can’t pay their rent. That shit is real. That’s what we’re in this to change.
