3. Rudeboy – Reason With Me
Following the release of ‘Double Double’ featuring Olamide and Phyno, Rudeboy has been rather silent in terms of putting out new content. However, after teasing on social media, he has finally dropped a new tune on us, complete with the visuals as directed by Clarence Peters.
