Savage G Re-Starts His Career With A Bang In Comeback Track ‘Cuban Link’

It’s been almost 2 years since I’ve heard from Savage G. It’s too bad because when he was active I posted a lot of his music (peep here.)  I’ve always enjoyed his unique take on the fast-paced Cali sound – murdering beats, pushing catchy hooks, and touching upon a plethora of topics. His comeback track, Cuban … More Savage G Re-Starts His Career With A Bang In Comeback Track ‘Cuban Link’

Savage G – California Palm Trees (New Track)

Although his stream count may … More Savage G – California Palm Trees (New Track)

Yin Yang feat. 21 Savage – If I Wanted Too (New Track)

Co-signs are a blessing, for the most part. Drake has put more people on to artists such as Roy Woods and Partynextdoor (among others) with his tweets, shout outs and OVO station. The former’s music pales in comparison to the latter, with PND becoming a household name in the r&b/hip hop world.
