The horror movie fan and L.A. rapper assures that the movie is about “pretty much everything I’m afraid of.” He turned to crowd funding and his fans to close the budget of his coming movie.
So far Kuso is about 65% finished. The music is ‘getting there’ as well. A lot to do but the most fun I’ve had since I made @xCaptainMurphyx— FLYLO (@flyinglotus) 15 août 2016
