Ras Kass – SOI3 (ft. K-Rino) (prod. Apollo Brown) (Video)

Man,  I love this reworking of a classic!  You’ve got K-Rino joining Ras Kass trading verses over an Apollo Brown reworking of the Diamond D classic remix of the original which is a sacred treasure of mine and many.

Can’t wait for the new project!
