"History repeats, so I loop beats" Even though I prefer the saying 'History doesn't repeat, but it rhymes', Thes One's line has always struck a cord. As a history student and beatmaker I've always felt...

 You got great producers, and you got superb producers, that can rap the hell out of any beat. Godfather Don was one of those legends that did both on a higher level. An introduction Godfather Don,...
