PLEKS TWO (TAYSEAN) - STRAIGHT, NO CHASER
"I put this together when I was like 17. Its a collection of beats from when I was calling myself Pleks. Since we aint put anything new out in a lil while, I thought I’d dust this off and share it witchall. I haven’t gone back and touched up the tracks, they just as I mixed them down years ago. The artwork is original and from about the same time. Slap this and practice your freestyle game."
