Oooooh man some of my favourite UK rappers on one track. This is the newest track from the Leddie and Smoggy, along with their boy Yosh. I’m not going to write a big long chit chat about why you should listen to this; I’m just gonna tell you it’s a golden track and you need to get your little ears on it.
After a week of sad news concerning my crappy country, and the destruction of our lovely NHS, it’s refreshing to hear that they’re people out there still with some intellect and conscience. Thanks again to the guys in the L&S camp for sending us this banger.
