RoQy TyRaid, "Royale with Cheese"

"Do you know what they call a Quarter Pounder with cheese in Paris?" Folks around Phoenix can call it a "Royale with cheese" now, too, after rapper RoQy TyRaid put his touch on the Pulp Fiction quote. The RoQ channels a darker more sinister side in this rant. "TyRaiD mode involves me sonically pulling your spine through your chest plate," he explains.

Mav, "In My Zone"
"Go hard, or go home," is the recurring chorus in this heavy hitting banger. Mav of Sol Camp and Zig Zag from NB Ridaz tag team this release to champion their hometown, "Phoenix, Arizone." The two talk about the state of the game and putting Arizona on the map in their own way.
