Warning Signz (prod. by AWOL) | Mayhem Muzik Mondays

peace folks. I know I've been away for a minute but I came back with good news. Today I present to you a song entitled





Warning Signz is a collaboration between AWOL and myself. AWOL's cousin Rocky introduced us around 2009 before he moved back to Rhode Island. While searching for different production to work with, I immediately enjoyed his sound as soon as I heard it. I consider this song to be a bit of social commentary on what I saw going on in the world around me and the world we all live in. Hopefully it's not too heavy for y'all to jam to. This single is a part of AWOL's Mayhem Muzik Monday series. ENJOY!!!
