Officially released on September 21st, the 24 track album features Nikki Jean, Bishop Edgar Jackson, Elena Pinderhughes, Simon Sayz, Crystal Torres, Damian Marley and Troi Irons. It also has several interludes, one of which is called Slave Ship.

DROGAS WAVE is a powerful, solid hip-hop album that will go down as a classic. Check it out on iTunes.
