So you may have heard “Cappuccino” or “Bang! Bang!” but if you liked them and you haven’t heard the rest of the album I highly suggest it. This duo from New Orleans got a little help opening for Common, and this debut album has gotten some attention, but not as much as I think it […]
Duo made up of Jabari Evans (Naledge) and Michael Aguilar (Double-O) who went to the University of Pennsylvania. They have been signed to Duck Down Records and released two albums in the past two years.
