He’s a been a favorite of FG for a minute (we just enlisted him to remix Bruiser Brigade!) so we’re proud to present this mix of some of his biggest bootlegs, where he reworks rap favorites from Top 40 mainstays and underground kingz alike, turning them into woozy digital bangers in his signature, lushly chopped-up style.
