I was lucky enough to be one of the fortunate folks out there to get my copies of this delicious audible treat from Oxygen the other day in the post. I opened my mailbox and saw it there in the post and was like “YESSSS!!!!!!!”. I ran up my driveway into the house and up into the lab and put it on decks, powered up the console and sat back and enjoyed some good, dope hiphop music. If your lucky to bump into him (if you live in NYC) or if you are lucky enough to order it online then I will assure you that you will not be disappointed with your purchase. I know I put up the previous folks but grabbed this one off of Ox’s crackbook page and wanted to show you all the cover art for the 7’inch.
