180 Days by Magic Tricks is a story about insecurity and learning to just be yourself, even though it may not come off that way.
The goal was to create a hip hop album involving several different styles/sub-genres of rap while also managing to tell a story within them. Thus, there ended up being 3 "interlude" tracks where Magic Tricks talks to himself with differing opinions on where the music should go. Part of him wants to make simple "banger" tracks so more people will listen and he'll be more popular, while another part of him wants to make more personal art-style tracks to get problems off of his chest and actually express himself. Halfway through he realizes he's gone too far with one side, and expresses a lot of grief.
All but two songs are produced by Magic Tricks. This whole thing took about a year and a half to make, going through nearly 200 songs before deciding the ones that I liked the most.
Thank you all for listening. Please share if you enjoy.
