As one half of the genre-defying duo Prayers, Leafar Seyer has his feet firmly planted in two worlds. On one hand he’s a goth, sporting black nails, a crucifix earring, and professing a deep abiding love for groups like Depeche Mode and Joy Division. On the other hand he is a proud chicano, tattooed with the symbols of his second family, the Sherman Grant Hills Park gang of southeastern San Diego. His Instagram page could feature anything from images of the singer in a swanky New York City hotel room to a picture of him throwing up gang signs with a friend who just got out of prison. He is a walking juxtaposition, a living oxymoron who has taken the seemingly opposite of worlds of goth and gangbanging to create the entirely unique genre of cholo goth. Along with producer Dave Parley’s hard hitting synth beats, Seyer’s songs are defiant tales of violence and melancholia. Sentiments that are amplified by meticulously art directed, shot in gorgeous black and white and starring the coolest, most stylish cliques in around—people who, like Seyer—find themselves straddling two subcultures.
In this latest installment of Behind the Lens, Seyer discusses the visual aesthetic of Prayers, shares some behind the scenes photos from his new music video and explains his love for 80s English synth-pop duo Pet Shop Boys.
Black culture isn’t about wearing the newest J’s, smokin dope, talking a certain way, or wearing certain things. It isn’t about droppin your new mixtape or leaving your woman to take care of yall’s kids. It isn’t about not paying child support or not having a dad. And it isn’t about sagging your pants and throwing up gang signs. It’s not about fighting or getting an ass whooping. Black culture is about knowing what your grandfathers and grandmothers had to go through back then, it’s about knowing where we stand now as a race. It’s about listening to music and eating certain things you’d rarely find anywhere else. It’s about family. It’s about knowing your roots and where you came from. Its about knowing certain stories about being black. Its about accepting all types of black people in your circle. Black culture and ghetto culture are two different things.
So a couple years ago i asked my brother what would happen if someone asked him why he wasn’t married and he said that he would drop the dopest line and jack…ive literally been in anticipation of this moment for like many years. today is the day i finally saw it happen. He did it. Just now. It happend.
OMG, SO THIS OLD ASS ‘AUNTY’ WAS ROUND AND SHE’S SUPER ‘TRADITIONAL’ AND SHE GOES, “WOW WHY ARNT YOU MARRIED” TO MY YOUNGER BROTHER AND HE TURNS TO ME AND WHISPERS, “IT’S TIME.”
HE PAUSES FOR A SECOND, CROUCHES ON THE FLOOR IN FRONT OF HER WITH HIS HANDS ON HERS, LOOKS HER DEAD IN THE EYES AND STERNLY PROCLAIMS….
“AUNTY, IM MARRIED TO THE GAME.” *THROWS UP SOME UNOFFICIAL GANG SIGNS AND WALKS OUT*
White kids from the ’burbs are throwing up gang signs. The 2001 Grammy winner for best rap artist was as white as rice. And blond-haired sorority sisters are sporting FUBU gear. What is going on in American culture that’s giving our nation a racial-identity crisis?
can you believe louis is the cutest person on earth he says things like “oi oi” and “happy days” while sticking up his smol middle finger or throwing west side gang signs like aww you cutie with a teacup tattoo on your arm how endearing
