Generosity is inspired by Uncommon Nasa and Short Fuze's love of the Mr. Robot television series and what the show represents in it's message and it's art. This song isn't a play by play of any of the seasons of the show or what happens on them, but it's an attempt to get into the mind of people like Elliot, Darlene, Angela or the other characters.
What if Elliot was a rapper/poet with something to say about how he found the world? This is that. The goal was to create a song that stands alone whether you've seen the show or not, while also paying some tribute to it.
Season 3 ended on Wednesday, Net Neutrality ended on Thursday. and now this on Friday. Enjoy it, while you can.

Recently, Uncommon Nasa and Man Bites Dog Records dropped the video for Gingerbread Hag. Here is a description and quote from Nasa himself:
Every song starts with an idea in someones head, some take longer than others to come to fruition. Gingerbread Hag is one of those songs. Somehow Uncommon Nasa's brain came up with an idea to make a rap song that was an inverse telling of the fable, Hansel & Gretel, told from the point of view of the old woman in the gingerbread house. When Nasa's critically acclaimed record, Written At Night, was being formulated it was finally time for the Gingerbread Hag to reveal herself to the world. Showing her face proudly during the thematic album's nightmare sequence was highly intentional. There were no better choices to share this exploration of the selfishness and privledge of children than Brzowksi on vocals and C-Money Burns on some chilling guitar licks. There was also no better place to shoot the visual representation of this idea then their wide open space of Portland, Maine. With that, hardened New Yorkers, Uncommon Nasa and director Mike Petrow piled into a car for the 5 hour trip North.
"What you are viewing is the result of an idea formed outside of the box and molded into a piece of art that hopefully sparks some thought and imagination. "- Uncommon Nasa
