  1. WHAT???? You got ‘Face twice on the same Monday’s Blues & Beats!!! Well done my friend. Scarface is my top 5 dead or alive @ the #1 spot!!!! And I’m from the heart of hip hop – NYC. He claims he’s scared to put out another album – I hope that was just for attention.

    I think I’m feeling that blood orange Entertainment remix but I’m not sure yet…

    1. Hahah gotta love the underrated emcees. I hope he does another record, I really like that Loso and Domo both went in on his “Guess Who’s Back” joint in the last couple years. Hoping it would spark a comeback, which who knows, might be on the way.
      Ps. I’m almost certain the Phoenix track will grow on you
