    Nice line up, but contrary to what is written up here, Chris Webby is NO newcomer. He’s been dropping stuff for a while now. And the fact that he isn’t signed yet doesn’t make sense to me. He’s got way more material out than Machine Gun Kelly for sure. But I guess good things take time. Hope Webby gets signed soon.
