“Untitled” (Remix by Zilla Rocca) Ft. Killer Mike x Pastor Troy

6 months ago, I released what I consider one of the best projects I ever created, ‘A World Only Gods Know.” Alpha & I spent three years crafting an album I would be proud to release to the world. While the album has been successful, there were people who felt that some records would benefit from a different sound. I decided upon an east-coast, sample based sound and had my supporters choose their favorite records.

I reached out to a ton of really dope producers – Camoflauge Monk, Jason/Griff, LÓrange, Disco Vietnam, Zilla Rocca, Tony Dark, Doe Pesci, and Farma Beats for this project, and it has come out oh so dope!

The first leak, “Untitled,” was remixed by the esteemed Zilla Rocca (Career Crooks, 3 Dollar Pistol, and features Killer Mike and Pastor Troy.
