      We are Burrbank. We dropped our debut album just two days ago and we need your help to let the whole world know about this phenomenon. I assure you; it is like nothing you’ve never heard before. ‘The ABC’s of Burrbank’

    Dracula Finesse God from Houston to Hollywood spreading the spiritual movement Theophany all over the world. I Don’t Drip I Spill is the new wave because instead of dripping where you only give tablespoons I spill and pour where you give them the whole thing

  2. Hey there hope all is well.
    I’m a hip hop artist based out of Kingston On Canada. I just released a new project (link below) titled “Lost File($)” and thought I would share my vision and sound. I have been recording for a number of years now and feel like I’m starting to find my stride. I’m sending this message today with the intentions of getting my sound out to some credited and respected ears. Studio time accompanied by numerous open mics in the Toronto area is where I feel I built my product.
