Aside from the fact that they ???. Hook the most addictive part of music. KOD. If a chorus by nature is a drug, the right repetitive hook is like crack. Cheap, but get you high as fuck https://t.co/hU5DtpGtRy

While in Zanzibar workin’ on one of the songs, maybe window pain, I asked myself what is the name of this album that I just fucked around and made. KOD came immediately. “What the fuck do that mean?” I asked. the 3 meanings followed in seconds. In tune. https://t.co/fChUwQ7vFT
