Whats going on world,
I am happy to finally give you the next installment of the FNXMusic series! DJ Big Mike Presents FNXMusic Vol 2: Lyrics Still Matter ft T. Sawyer, Chino XL, Apathy, Canibus, Cambatta, SeeS, Big Kurt, Big G’s & Whispers. To be frank, this culture means so much to me that I wanted to deliver a project that helped set the tone in today’s rap climate, lyrically. I wanted to show my predecessors in hip hop that I understood their lessons and now the student has become the teacher. I wanted to connect with fans of real hip hip and show them that there are still artists who care about their artistry and perfecting their craft. And most importantly,I wanted to prove that I am one of the NICEST PERIOD! This mixtape proves that. I am so proud of this effort and beyond excited to put this into the universe. Salute to the real lyricists who carry the torch of hip hip and the fans who make it possible. I do this for you!! Bars over bullshit!!!
But before I dip, let me say salute to a few people!!! Im rushing trying to get this tape out so I hope I dont make any typos!
