The Strangers — The Strangers


Hip Hop/Rap

Joshua Boydston
The last we heard from Moore emcee Jon Tefic (formerly Methotrexate), he had put out the stellar Camelpacks & Battlerapz, a smart full-length that acted as a tribute in equal parts to A Tribe Called Quest and Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All.
