Cocaine 80s – Anywhere But Here

This one’s courtesy of Mr. Tom Simpson (scroll down, he isn’t the fetching Egyptian lass at the top of the ‘About Us’ page) – cheers! – they’re a hip-hop collective put together by producer No I.D. featuring Common, James Fauntleroy, Kevin Randolph,… Continue Reading →
