“I must’ve been cooking some dope or some shit that week, because the nigga started hitting the piñata, and it wasn’t shit but dope falling out the piñata. I was just like, “Damn, man.” They was just kids playing in the dope. They was just playin’ in the dope. It was little four-year-old kids hitting dope in piñatas.”
This artwork depicts a dream Gibbs had that birthed the project title. A broken piñata is seen from above, a birthday hat and bat along side as little bare footprints head away from the broken cocaine bricks. The effects of what we sometimes do to survive ripples outward, felt by those we would rather protect than harm.
This artwork also now appears on the Madlib Medicine Show 24 release “Piñata Beats”.
