With a great supporting cast this Troy Ave sophomore album “Major Without A Deal” looks like it could arrive in time to be a summer classic. This collab surprised me I didn’t expect to see it glad 50 supporting an up & coming NY artist who is crafting his own lane with his crew boss shit.
Next up on Banks hit list of 90’s beats. All my old school hip hop fans will appreciate it.
This is a REAL powerful song here by G Unit that could insight a riot, but i do agree with what they are saying. check it out if you havent heard it RIP Mike Brown Rip Eric Garner RIP Ezell Ford Rip many more who have fell victim & will fall victim to this cruel act.
