I still have “Lonely Avenue” from Stephen’s Grammy Award winning album, “Mind Control” on repeat. I get like that when I hear a track I love. That’s not to say Ragga only have one song that I like yu undastan. The Ragga has given us hit after hit after hit, don’t it?
I just checked my e-mail and received a blast from Tiffany Mea.
I was introduced to a new single (new to me anyway) from Ragga entitled, “Thorn Or A Rose” featuring Black Thought.
I have since listened to the track five times and I got the e-mail less than a half an hour ago.
Wow…what a beautiful song. Lyrics are definitely on point: “didn’t you know, that the higher you go, it’s the more you’ll expose, if you’re a thorn or a rose!” BRAP!
Ragga if you’re reading, big up yuself mi genaral.
Love it love it love it.
I am sure you all will love it too.
