OLD SELF is an aging millennial (excuse me Willennial) rap man. As a lyricist, performance artist, and cofounder of internationally renowned DIY venue Crunch House, OLD SELF has established himself as a pillar of the independent rap community and has become a staple of the New Haven and NYC rap scenes. Through occasional touring and local supporting roles OLD SELF has proven he isn’t afraid to have a pizza delivered to the stage. He has shared bills with notable acts such as Homeboy Sandman, Open Mike Eagle, and Quelle Chris, just to name a few.
After years of anticipation, OLD SELF finally gives us his debut album, Word Art Gallery, an engaging excursion in late-stage capitalism rap. This album is a suburban junk culture masterpiece located at the corner of nostalgia sickness and meaningless materialism, somewhere along the path of the forever-adolescent search for happiness. OLD SELF welcomes you to the Word Art Gallery via we are the karma kids, available now on CD, cassette, digital download, and all major streaming services.
