HipHopLead- On your first single “Euro” you were talking about your grind to make that paper. Is the reason you released a record like this first because almost every human being strives for the same goal?
D-Stylez -To be honest I released this single because everyone always talks about money, who talks about EURO? We heard Euro in some songs but most people did not think of making this a whole song. I just wanted to hear my song in the club 1 time so I know how it feels to be the track the DJ plays
