Spillage Village | Bears Like This Too Much
It's the third part to the saga. We use these Bears projects like checkpoints, markers in time. The first one came out when we first started fucking around with these sounds. The second one came as niggas had toured a little bit, learned a little bit. At this point now, we've been on tours, we've got a lot of other things we've been working on. We've worked with a lot of artists. We've seen a lot more. So this project is the next chapter of that. It's everybody's songs. Some solo songs. Some collab songs. It's definitely a crew tape. It's not for the likes, it's for the love. - Spillage Village
