Philadelphia native, Gone Wallace, mixes a future sound with an old school style to stretch the limits of the hip hop genre. High Renaissance II mirrors the innovation and creative genius of the Italian High Renaissance period by which it is directly inspired. Similarly to the High Renaissance period, High Renaissance II deals with discovery and self-realization and the scrutiny that comes with it. Gone, like Raphael Sanzio da Urbino, delivers yet another work of art. Consider High Renaissance II to be Gone Wallace's School of Athens.
