But that’s just the beginning, they have entered realms and territories fans may have not heard from the trio, as they glide effortlessly over various different sounds including trap beats and house beats all produced by Tony Bones. The trio have made headway to redefine what it means to do rap. The project is an eclectic array of their influences over the years, mish mashed and churned out as a ground breaking project for U.K. Music. The first single ‘Custom Made,’ will be released January 19th, along with the pre-order to the full project.
