Thudamentals ‘Welcome To Australia’ Official Ambassadors

Having solidified a noteworthy sound in the forces of Australian Hip Hop, Mailer doesn’t lean on honorary collaboration stripes from last year’s Gravitas EP elite like Jeswon of the Thundamentals, The Tongue, P Smurf of the Daily Meds, and Jackie Onassis. … Continue reading Mailer Daemon Ronin LP
