This mixtape came a little quick compared to the others, but this was the first one I actually started to plot out. It's a mixtape for those gloomy days where you just sit in your room. Lay on your bed. Read, etc...

Embrace the melancholy days or nostalgia and know there is a light at the end of the tunnel. You're not alone in your thoughts.
