Belgium-based muralist and painter ROA is offering an extravagant exhibit at the Backwoods Gallery in Australia dubbed “Annihilation”. The multi-medium artist portrays a series of endangered animals that reside in Australia like the bilby, honey possum, numbat, tree kangaroo, and wombat. The goal set behind these pieces for ROA are to bring awareness to the near extinct species & wild life habitats due to human activity.

Per a gallery statement via ROA,

Annihilation is ROA challenging us to contemplate our current climate discourse and quietly focus on, observe, and investigate nature. An invitation to reconnect to nature, to empathize, and as the dominant species recognize that the choice is ours alone to ensure all of nature’s survival, not just our own,

Included in the ‘Annihilation’ project, ROA also painted a sprawling wall mural on the gallery’s facade showing his realist take on a honey possum. The larger then life-sized mural is just another example of his skill-set and focus on change. To learn more about the gallery showing visit  Backwoods Gallery’s website. The gallery is only allowing private previews by appointment only due to the coronavirus outbreak. The show is slated to run until April 5.

Music| @ToryLanez Talks Success In New Single "W"

In February, Toronto rapper/singer Tory Lanez announced that he has reached the finish line of his label deal with Interscope and also teased his next upcoming project dubbed “New Toronto 3“. In support of his major successes at Interscope and being a major artist period, Tory offers up a new single titled “W” representing his much earned success.

‘W’ is a brief track, clocking in at under two-minutes, and is a barrage of bars over some solemn production. The lyric tyrant is known for heavy bars, emphatic flow & metaphoric messaging that always offers a repeat-able line or two. Lanez opens up about his climb to the spot he is in now with bars like “I never saw us becoming famous in my imagination/Sat in too many rooms with losers who was procrastinatin’” and “When your influence too big then they assassinate ya/When you keep this sh*t too real they wanna fabricate ya”. These lines just gives depth to his struggle and his rise that he plans to maintain for some time.

“Rest my n*gga Pop Smoke, know I’m lettin’ shots go/ At any n*gga, fuck it, I inherited the opps folk/ Know I’m finna make it to the tippy-tippy top, bro, for you/ I knew that’s what you wanna see me do/ Can’t believe this sh*t, I can’t believe this sh*t is true/ Took you out your glory, who wanna see you lose?/ Woke up in the mornin’, see my n*gga on the news/ And I’m still like “Damn”, tryna put together screws.”

To the close of this record we even get some words shared by Pop Smoke about the pressure of success and maintaining a sound mind.

“I’ma say, give like a lesson to my younger n*ggas, you feel me? Now, you n*ggas like us, coming from where we come from, you can’t afford to f*ck up. You can’t afford to slip up, make no mistakes, you heard? ‘Cause, they watchin’, and they, and they, they want us to, you know what I’m saying? We got all odds against us.”
