On Carnelian, rapper Crescent Moon delivers surreal narratives based on the intersection of race, religion, and crime from his perspective as a person of mixed-race heritage. Producer Anatomy explores the dark altered state suggested in the vocals, incorporating avant-garde influences, while staying rooted in hip-hop. The title refers to a red semi-precious stone, which is often found in religious and royal artifacts. The root of the word carnelian refers to the latin carnis, meaning flesh.
