"If you take your love away from me I'll go crazy...", this particular line is so recognizable. In 1997 Blackstreet delivered their hit song "Don't Leave Me", originally produced by Teddy Riley from a El DeBarge sample. AmbI Lyrics and LA VanGogh are teaming up as a new duo called SafeNSound, for their first release we get a flip of the popular Blackstreet song. They plan on releasing a new project, "On The Safe Side", stay tuned for more.
Earlier this year Phor dropped his mixtape "Sacrifice", but has been pretty quite musically since its release. He's kept busy as a tattoo artist and is a personality on the show 'Black Ink Crew Chicago'. For this new release he team up with frequent collaborator Lehday, for a song called "Eat".
