Tell us about your next release?
My next release has 7 cuts to make an EP. Im traditional I do it the way its done in every genre and it has worked. The EP BUGS LIFE (MY DAYS ON EARTH) has banging story telling tracks. They hit hard and straight to the point. The first single Billion dollars dream tells it all. Giving my struggles in life and in the game. The follow up single is Fight for life. A hard core MMA fighter And trainer make it out of the ghetto. Wit indicted giving you that raw. And I won't Love A rough smooth cut track that has that every day life feel. Been hustling has that serious street vibe that takes you too real life. SnAkes down and dirty cut that's gonna hurt some peoples feelings but I DON'T CARE. Pimp tight features nutcase #001 with that Texas ride feel. And A List a collaboration with the high powered party throwers in Nashville. It s a great EP. Should gain lots of exposure.
