Screaming organs and hard-hitting drums lay a powerful foundation for the distinct lyrical styles of Phat Kat and Elzhi. The two emcees deliver raw, unfiltered verses that delve into the harsh realities of their lived experiences, bringing authenticity and depth to the track.

DJ Design (Keith Griego) is no stranger to the hip-hop scene. As a DJ, beatmaker, and visual artist, his influence spans decades.
