On some other shit...
It's a common and oft lamented phrase in today's art world: "Everything worth doing has already been done". The premise that it is, in our age, impossible to do something new, something heretofore unimagined, something explosively and irrevocably unique - has been kicked into a grave by this young man.
Already an accomplished musician, poet, organizer, actor, and man - Fascious here explores concepts and ideas in entirely undiscovered ways. His blend of culturally relevant and scathingly honest lyrics with music that hasn't yet been used in hip hop to it's full potential shows a young mind that has not so much as scratched the surface of his endlessly undefined future. Other people have tried to do what Fascious does here, but none have succeeded in carving as cogent and comprehensive a message from the often frenetic, maddened pace of our days as does Fascious. If you don't own a copy, buy two. If you haven't seen this magnus opus performed live, get in your car right now.
Penumbra will alter the way you understand entertainment - and will help display one of the great young talents our new century has.

Fascious, is, in all honesty - on some OTHER shit...
