Brown Bag AllStars Two-Fer!

J57 thinks he’s slick – he’s just gonna randomly leak quality shit at the end of the year, for no other reason than to showcase how fresh the BBAS is, huh? Fucking bastard. Two-fer right chea…

KonceptPlaying Life (marink Remix)”: marink’s a producer who I wish I heard more from.

It’s almost as if you spend a night drinking with one of your rowdier friends, only to get deep into the night and see the other side of their mania. Good shit.

Great 2010 from BBAS, and if you’re in the area, hit up the Soul Khan & Friends show on NYE:
