DOWNLOAD | Animal – EP – The Great & The Magnificent
As a duo, making their debut on Hip-Hop KIngs is “The Great and The Magnificent” with the video to their single “Animal”. I say as a duo, because one member of the group (Baron Von Alias) was featured back in 2011, and his partner in rhyme “The Magnificent MistaBreeze” is introduced to Hip-Hop Kings fans for the first time. Animal has been directed and edited by Steesh, K Richardson, A Breeze and P Burness and production credits go to Sheesh. Animal is taken from The Great and The Magnificennt’s “Animal E.P” whichc also includes a clean/dirty, instrumental version, along with a bonus track titled “Kill or Be Killed”. Fans can download the Animal EP from the iTunes link above, and watch the new video for The Great and The Magnificent – Animal on the YouTube player below.
