But I've been keepin’ my ear to the streets as I'm hittin’ these cities and connecting with who's hot. Everybody on board for this project has been on the grind for a minute. Me and Greg Street have been talkin about giving independent artists a chance to shine in a major way and this project accomplishes that. This is only the beginning- Street and Bubba gonna keep these comin’. If you got hot music, holla at us. We getting’ Volume 2 ready now."
