Savannah, Georgia-based rapper and producer cunabear (@cunabear) has returned with his 40th studio album, YAWNING TOWARDS HEAVEN!!!! cunabear is the co-founder of tape label, BearTooth Collective and recently appeared on "untitled" alongside wc tank on 'i's' .and then there was flowers EP. YAWNING TOWARDS HEAVEN!!!! was produced by cunabear's Quasimoto/Madlib-esque alter-ego sp00ks, as are the majority of his recent releases. "YAWNING TOWARDS HEAVEN!!!! is something of a sequel or sister-project to i pray [that] you enjoy your life," cunabear recently told The Witzard, via email. "They were originally, one whole project and in the very beginning, it was less of an "album" and more of a "pet-project" that I wasn't going to release. I was experimenting with production styles both old and new, trying to breathe new life into what foundation I'd built so far," he continued. Nestled below is cunabear's latest music video for "Blueberry Jams" from his April 2018 album, Ursine Valor.
Honestly, in my humble opinion, cunabear's YAWNING TOWARDS HEAVEN!!!! sounds like something stylistically in-between Kanye's Aggro-Rap magnum opus, Yeezus and The Postal Service's 2003 debut, Give Up. YAWNING TOWARDS HEAVEN!!!! is actually, packaged along with it's aforementioned "sequel," i pray that you enjoy your life, in a special shiny gold double-cassette package now available from cunabear/BearTooth Collective's Bandcamp page. While i pray that you enjoy your life only boasts one feature: Valore AKA Lady Valore on "chai + honey & sativa blunts," YAWNING TOWARDS HEAVEN!!!! showcases guest spots from SB The Moor, BigStupid!diot, Gomec, Virgil Wolfe, Creative Space Cadet—all on one single posse cut!—Mugwampers, BigStupid!diot (again,) and four_circles. cunabear is, somehow, already working on the follow-up to YAWNING TOWARDS HEAVEN!!!!/i pray that you enjoy your life coming this September... as well as, if "the rumors" are to be believed, a collaborative project with Mugwampers & Unsung. Just 7/10 IPYEYL/YTH Limited Edition Gold Bricks (Double-cassette) are now available from cunabear's Bandcamp page for a limited time only!
