Versatile channels the storytelling spirit of Slick Rick with ‘Mad Scene’, a song by the Dublin rappers about getting mad ouvva with added Dutch Ovens, getting paid by Fás and eh, hanging a guard. Thanks to OG Mark Kavanagh for the tip.

What do you get when you cross TNGHT with Skrillex?
Comments Off on YOGI – ‘Burial’ feat. Pusha T
