A surprise to many as Sasco has been making moves on the low over the years, although I wish he dropped 16 or even 32 bars. Maybe Royce has a few tricks up his sleeve on his upcoming “Layers” album. Hear more of Agent Sasco here. In the meantime, check out the track below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
