Track: Felly – Good Wine (Prod. by IAMNOBODI)

Took a risk on this one but oh man it paid off, reminds me of that era around 2010-2012 when Mac Miller, Currensy and Wiz Khalifa were the primary dominant forces and up and comers, this kid granite it’s a mellow track, has definitely caught my attention, and well hell TO BE REAL I ONLY PAID $10.00
