Sincerely Yours - Hold Me Back

No comments:

Since dropping the video to the Slot-A and Neak assisted single, "AMilliPlus", we haven't heard much from Sincerely Yours. Last year he brought us a EP called "One Night Only" that featured seven track, which included the standout single "Go Dumb".

OnGaud - Hush

No comments:

Recently I came across the fact that OnGaud is no longer a trio. While there is not much to say about it, they seem to be all on good terms. With that being said OnGaud is really to deliver new content, dropping a remix of sorts called "Hush". When Waka Flocka jump on J. Cole's "Fire Squad" it seem to go largely unknown, even though he was really spitting. OnGaud brings new life to it, with a little bit of Mobb Deep, to turn the record into more than just a remix.
