Mello Music Group just dropped some new visuals for the Gensu X Planet Asia joint “Faces On The Dollar” peep above
“For our second epside, Out Da Box Radio is happy to feature the talented and accomplished West coast Emcee “Planet Asia”. In this in-depth interview, Planet Asia takes the time to speak to us about a number of interesting topics including his humble beginnings, his influences from the East Coast and his ability to stay relevant throughout his music career. He also speaks on working with Mello Music Producer Gensu Dean, as well as with The Alchemist, his new group the Durag Dynasty and the possibility of doing a collabo project with acclaimed Stones Throw Producer “Madlib”. When asked about new talent he’s impressed with, Asia also names Pro Era front man “Joey Bada$$” as one he’s currently checking for. Although the interview clocks in a little over an hour, I believe there’s so much here to keep your interest. So definitely take time to listen and feel free to spread the word. Enjoy!” -Out Da Box Radio
