Most of our waking life is spent en route. Commuting to the job, flying to the resort, working toward one goal or another, perpetually on our way to something.
Some try to speed up the process. Lots spend their time comparing their progress to others. Many diffuse their inner frustrations by tapping into their inner 7-year-old with a verbal, "are we there yet?" And all of us spend at least some time visualizing the finish line, imagining what it will feel like to finally reach completion.
What will it be like to finally make it? To pass the test? To get the girl? To get the job? Or even more enticing, to quit the job?
For a young artist by the name of Flowz, that moment of completion has begun to materialize. As the year comes to a close, so does the journey of one of Virginia's greatest talents.
"A younger me never truly wanted to be a famous rapper," the artist explained in an open letter to supporters. "I just wanted to be loved." Between his intuitive taste for melody, his infectious personality, and undeniable stage presence, Flowz has earned the love he sought out to achieve at the beginning of his journey.
Thankfully, the announcement of his retirement is coupled with a parting gift in the form of his latest and final project, Was A Dog. Standing at an impressive 17 tracks, the project is a time capsule that perfectly encompasses the elements that have attracted fans over the years.
Whether you're a newcomer or a returning fan, Flowz comes with much to love in his farewell project. Was A Dog is streamable via the links below and will be available on all DSPs soon.
