FREE Patreon bonuses include…
* A lengthy discussion with pedestrian, producer Jel, and the multi-talented Kevin Beacham, exploring Jel and Beacham's development in Chicago's underground hip hop scene in the 90s, the genesis of Scribble Jam, early relationships that would eventually lead to anticon, pedestrian's Evangelist J.B. Best alter-ego, and much more.
* An 11-minute videotaped performance of pedestrian as Evangelist J.B. Best.
* Photographs of pedestrian’s transcribed and otherwise unreleased "Song Of Saint Pac" with accompanying artwork, as printed on a limited series of prayer flags.

And our Patreon subscribers’ exclusive bonus is the official STUFFED ANIMALS album. Besides a crappy-sounding leak with different tracks, there has been no previous release of this supergroup comprised of pedestrian, Circus, Doseone, sole, Why?, L*Roneous, Megabusive, Controller 7, and Moodswing9. An uncompromising and fearless celebration of untamed art rap, this album, recorded around the turn of the century, exemplifies the anticon era at the peak of its adventurousness.
