Some smooth leather seats and Cadillac rap for a Wednesday evening — with a boxing bout or two to toughen us up. Taken from DaVinci’s MOEna Lisa. The new Shady Blaze video is below the jump because he raps too well and there is no amount of Bay Area bud that can make him mellow.
Shady Blaze Be Truth January 16, 2013
