Beat Garden Stays Flawless

Press release:

Never taking any days off, Flawless Hustle is back less than four months after the release of the critically-acclaimed Money Isn’t Real compilation with another dip into the money pit of true Hip-Hop, entitled Stay Flawless. The first single from this project is a dream and a treat – Sene and Von Pea linked up for some serious fury, trading verses over a head-nodding, string-driven banger. Blaze an L of that good, throw your hoodie on and tell them fake niggas in your world what you really feel about them. Perfect kiss-off for a new year. Nice guys finish last, hustlers keep it movin’… Flawless.

Stay Flawless also features: Prince Po, Jake One, Madlib, L.I.F.E. Long, D.Black, Vanderslice, Al Mighty, Zilla Rocca, Has-Lo, SK, Curly Castro, Chill Moody, IllumiNessence, and many more.
