It's a song about Graham's refusal to cower under the labels of others, he said. I watched Graham sit on the couch, rapping along to his own song about Kong wreaking havoc as he climbed to the top of the Empire State Building holding Darrow tightly. In an attempt to point out hypocrisy, the typically positive and kid friendly Graham had included potentially offensive language. I started to wonder how he might bring this belligerent song to life in concert without people thinking he was just another tawdry rap artist. The record ended with "Fight x Flight = Fall," a soft, almost ambient rap depicting Kong's fall and death as well as the epilogue track "Splash" that brought the album full circle with the idea that even in death, our influence isn't lost.

" Each track is steeped in raw, primal beats, and little imagination was required to picture each scene. The record's seventh track "Runaway" drastically swerved away from straight rap into an instrumental electro pop track produced by local music icon Brian Paul Bennett. Sugary auto tuned vocals backed up Graham serenading Ann Darrow in a teen prom song. He croons "I am scared to bruise you.
