Forgotten Treasure: Devin the Dude “See What I Can Pull”

Devin the Dude is just criminally underrated. Dude from Houston has been putting out records every year or two and he’s never really gotten the mainstream praise he should have. “See what I can pull” is from his first record back in 1998 and it’s just such a lazy southern …
