Richmond, Virginia-based artist McKinley Dixon has always used his music as a tool
for healing, exploring, and unpacking the Black experience in order to create
stories for others like him. For My Mama And Anyone Who Look Like Her, Dixon's
debut album on Spacebomb, is the culmination of a journey where heartbreak and
introspection challenged him to adapt new ways of communicating physically and
mentally, as well as across time and space.
The best way to sum up this album is: I was sad, I was mad, and now I'm alive,"
Dixon explains. "These things I talk about on the record have had harmful and
brilliant effects on my timeline, and have forced me to be cognizant of the fact
that living is complex. Rap has allowed me the language to communicate, and be
someone who can communicate with people from all over. Knowing how far I've
come, I think people will find trust in the message I'm sending."
