Nas (MTV’s #5 greatest MC of all time) has been hyping the track since listening to it. Since then hip hop fans from all over the world have been tuning in to listen to Whosanes new track.

Not mention the excellent exposure this could give Lyle. Whosane is being flown back to New York next month for talks with some major players over Read more »Share
