You are an android. Okay, well maybe you're not really an android, but you have been programmed.
Hiphop artist, GaKnew Roxwel, dives into psychology and brings back a bounty of gems. Under the Influence, paired with the Sound of Silence album, creatively shares the science of automatization and how habits reign over more than we realize. This dynamic dual of book and CD tells the universal tale of Calvin Lloyd, and his triumph from being tangled in a web of perpetuated abuse to unraveling his past for mental freedom. Written like a film, Sound of Silence gives a first person narrative of Calvin’s journey, while Under the Influence analyzes his psychology with a host of behavioral theories. This project maps out a path to balanced emotional health and inner peace by breaking down the complexities of influence and our innate dependency on automatized functions. Dissecting a variety of relationships and the subconscious nature of learning, it’s your practical step-by-step model for breaking cycles. Under the Influence is knowledge from psychoanalytic circles packaged for everyday people.
