“Small Things to a Giant” is a common refrain in the Bay Area. It’s a way for us to dismiss the obstacles or people facing us– the verbal equivalent of brushing off our shoulders. It’s also the name of Daveed Diggs‘ first solo album and title track.

We won’t spoil the ending, but we recommend checking it out for yourself.
Don’t miss the brilliant wordplay and voracious flows either. The Getback Crew are at the forefront of the Bay’s new generation of educated slick-talkers.
