Many may recall that Colin Munroe created a huge buzz around himself by doing his remake of Kanye West's Flashing Lights. Well, he's been making a lot of movies, most predominately signing a deal with Universal Records under Dallas Austin's label. He's been in the works with a finished album after several years in the making, and now he's getting ready to drop his mixtape. By the way, WE HAVE A SPECIAL TREAT FOR EVERYONE: we did an interview with Colin not too long ago but have been waiting for the right time to post it. Don't worry, we'll have it up soon, as well as the interview with Mickey Factz, perhaps right next to each other! In the meantime, here's the trailer for the mixtape, with information about the mixtape below:
