Rasheed Chappell – Aiding & Abetting (ft. Daniel Son x Crimeapple) (Video)

Here’s a great track from Rasheed Chappell’s fantastic album, First Brick.   This track features another two artists that have been making big waves in 2018, Daniel Son and Crimeapple.  There is no stopping this lineup over the production from Kenny Dope.

Respect!
