His single “Bad Hombres” is out not featuring The Microphone Prince, Thirstin Howl the 3rd, Silent Knight & Kurious. Produced by Rod Da Blizz, the brass samples have an homage and anthem feel to them that paints a perfect landscape for a posse cut of Boricuas, with a nasty dirty switch up in the beat, this is a hard-body summer vibe repping heavy for their culture and their artistry.
