Onra & Lexis’ “Teenage Years Rap Tape”

Hip-Hop

I’m really happy to finally be posting this. This summer I was hanging out with good homie and super talented producer ONRA after the show we played together. After doing the music nerd talk we realised that we have pretty much the same influences and tastes. So we decided to make a rap tape of some of our favorite teenage years tracks! Of course this is by no means a best-of; if it was it would have some kind of Time Life 10 CD’s Box type shit. Hope you bump this in the walkman. Auto-reverse for days!!
