World of Imagination is a collection of music that I wrote and produced between 2003 and 2005. It was a different era for me personally, spiritually, musically, and psychologically, and stands in contrast to much of my current music. It is what it is.
Imagination was a rapper alias I used. In about 2000, I decided to take it up, in a desire to become more vivid, abstract, and grammatical. Looking back, there was also a certain lack of self confidence in myself, that I was trying to be very indirect by being so abstract.
Moreover, Imagination was also a deliberate move to create more intellectual and spiritual music. A lot of it was inspired by the music I was hearing from all across the country in the underground scene, and particularly by the local emcees in ciphers and open mics in parks and alleyways.
Many of these beats grew out of those collaborations. Eventually they all fell apart, and I had all these beats and verses that needed to just release. I recorded the song two years too late, and edited some of the songs. I burned a CD-R and gave it to several of my close friends, and then I went away to become a monk.
