With the May 7th release date for The Green Box approaching, Locksmith speaks with MTV about the inspiration behind the project. Sharing that all he wanted to do as a youngin’ was hang out by the big electrical green box outside of his home.
This is probably my most personal work. It’s a glimpse of who Locksmith is as a person, as a young man growing up and my journey to becoming who I am now.
When I listened to the songs I was like, ‘Yo this album is kinda describing where I came from and my progression and who I am now. What’s the best way to symbolize that? Going back to my neighborhood, Crescent Park, Richmond, California and taking that symbol which is the green box.
