Holland Scarth – Mclean Deluxe [Album]

There’s something to this funky introduction to Cincinnati producer Holland Scarth. The album is a collaboration with rapper Devin Burgess.

While Cincinnati does boast a nice hip-hop resume (at least for a city its size), it doesn’t … Continue reading Cincinnati // On The Rise // Mix
