Subhan returns with another vibe filled episode for you listeners. The sun is out and spring is finally blossoming, & we got the perfect soundtrack for your sidewalk strolls 🚶🏽♂️
This episode I am joined by one of Ottawa's most prominent & talented MC's : CGB a.k.a. Can't Go Broke !! The Overbrook native took time out of his busy schedule to stop by and chop it up with me for one of my favourite interviews to date. One can describe CGB's sound as introspective, intricate and innovative. With his beat selection always challenging his lyrical ability creating an immersive and atmospheric journey for the listener to embark on.
