Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.

If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.

Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.


fish don't climb trees is the forthcoming album from VMP Rising alumni, Chester Watson. The St. Louis-born rapper began releasing music at the age of 15 carving out a lane in the underground hip hop scene as the "Monotone Samurai." Citing inspiration from Psymun, MF DOOM, Odd Future, and more, fish don't climb trees takes its name from the renowned Einstein quote but imbues Chester's own message to heed to his own standards and avoid the influences of misguided characterizations or judgements. Having been hailed by the likes of Complex and Pitchfork as a notable rap auteur to watch, Chester delivers on that promise in his own quintessential style, with an album that winds from downtempo dub to 808s and J-Dilla inspired beats, all with the foreboding undercurrent of his storytelling leading the way.
Limited to 500 copies, the VMP exclusive version of chester watson's fish don't climb trees is pressed at GZ on Pink vinyl. The 1LP will arrive in a single, reverse board, numbered jacket.
