And lastly, Reppin:

I really like these dudes think they have a nice flow and overall sound great together as a group. I am a big fan of Koins already so I know he is sick, but i gotta give it up to Izzy and Dae. Izzy was killing all the tracks I’ve heard from them so I know he is up next for a shoutout. These songs all came out on what seems to be a small EP project, but not sure. I just put them in the order of my personal favorites. Stay tuned.
