Put on your dancing shoes. It's time to shake your booty as I sit down with Lazy JP of the hip-hop duo BBGuns for a talk about the underground rap scene, some business strategies of being an independent artist in 2018 and their new album which just dropped this week. Sit back, relax and let's Start The Beat!
