The ability to escape from reality to a world of fantasy.
Most of the world's great pieces of art, from music to film and paintings, all come from the artist's fantasies.

Song off the Pete Rock and CL Smooth 1994 Album, The Main Ingredient. The song features the perfect old school beat with Pete Rock providing the vocals. To appreciate the song to the fullest, smoke a blunt with it.
"The name is Pete Rock, I'll take you higher than the ism. I'm on an exodus, Escapism."
