Whether you’ve listened to More Life yet or you are depriving your ear buds of champagnepapi’s glory, the ethos of the playlist is one worth adopting. The expression ‘more life, more strength,’ is a Jamaican slang expression to “wish someone well”, brought to the mainstream by big dancehall names like Vybz Kartel. In his Nardwuar interview, Drake noted Kartel as one of his “biggest inspirations”. I could go on for hours about the nugs of wisdom to be taken from such a mentality—more music, more art, more friends, more family, more life—but right now, I’ll just focus on the more art part. So without further ado, peep your list of local art hot spots from some creatives who are heavy on the grind below.
