It’s that time again. The time to let y’all know that something pretty fly is coming your way.  After the critically acclaimed A-Free-Ka in 2009, Shafiq Husayn is crafting another musical masterpiece ” The LooP”. My expectations are high cause working with the likes of  Jimetta Rose, J. Mitchell, Breezy Lovejoy, Mic Holden, and Thundercat just has to result in something really good.
