On a societal level, the harmful effects of lax gun laws are clear. At the same time, when you’re living in constant fear for your life, and the police seem more interested in harassing than protecting you, packing heat often seems like the only way to even the odds. On his first Booth feature, Seattle rhymesayer Jarv Dee sets the record straight on why he and his circle keep Guns Around: “It’s about self-protection, self-determination. I mean, I’ve got the right to stay alive by any means necessary.” Fellow Emerald City repper Cam the Mac assists on the guest tip, joining Jarv over the minimal boardwork of Raised Byy Wolves. Eric Miller‘s official visuals round out the package. Moor Bible: Book of Jarv is currently unscheduled, but we’ll keep you supplied with singles and release details leading up to its eventual arrival.
