Armand Hammer – We Buy Diabetic Test Strips
This album is what we like to call in the industry ‘a spicy meatball’. Experimental rap goodness from one of the underground’s most compelling duos. billy woods and E L U C I D always cook when they link up and they’ve invited JPEGMAFIA, EL-P, Pink Siifu and more for the ride. Strap yourself in.
