Mr. Lif and L’Orange are joining forces for a new project title ‘The Life and Death of Scenery.’ Mello Music Group, Mr. Lif, and L’Orange partnered with Adult Swim on the new project and it will be released for free on October 7th with an extended album coming a week later on Mellow music Group with an alternate cover.
The concept behind the album is that the world has ended and the last remaining people on earth joined together to create the last society. The project will have features from DJ QBert, Gonjasufi, Insight, Chester Watson, Akrobatik, and Wyatt Cenac (narrator).
“A poem with an Orwellian tone. So ironic to find art & inspiration deep within oppression. “The Life & Death of Scenery” paints a portrait where art is outlawed and hums a melody where harmony is an offense punishable by death.”

The image was striking. The story behind the image even more. The cover is from a photo taken in the early 50’s illustrated by Duane Planes. The kid holding the pistol is Phay’s father and it captures how serious the world was back then. His father only wanted the best so at the age of 19, he move to the United States to escape the war-stricken country. “Us” by Phay is for him. It’s a moving song with a catchy hook and verses. Oh, and that choir at the end completely seals the deal. This is a song of hope and dreams and doing what’s needed to make a better life for yourself, your family, and generations to come.
