    Wish I could see the show but they all go hard even Lil B on the beat 9th wonder gave him “Base for your face” he goes hard at moments still wish XV, Chip Tha Ripper, Devin the Dude, Smoke DZA, Vado, Mike Dreams, Laws, Emilio Rojas, and Dom Kennedy would get more recognition too but not enough room for everyone I guess…
