This is probably the mixtape that I’ve worked the longest on, ever. Gaff and I spent countless hours figuring out just how to give you the goods, and here it is. Recommended to be bumped on a nice system with bass, but that goes without saying. Why are you satisfied with playing your music off them laptop speakers anyway?
