Here you go! Had a nice chat with Sango regarding his latest album entitled “North“.  While the entire internet and twitter feeds were dissecting Kendrick’s verse on the unreleased Big Sean track,  Sango dropped knowledge regarding how his family was very inspirational, adapting to new chapters in his life and the process of creating his latest project. Take a listen and make sure to download this exclusive dj mix! And go cop the album!
