Controller 7 – Scraps: outtakes, demos, ideas 2000​-​2014

For those who know Controller 7 from his releases on Bully Records, will be excited to hear this new mix of unused tracks. As the man says himself –
“As I was trying to finish up Right Handed Straw, I had a bunch of stuff that didn’t make the cut or had been sitting on my computer forever. Some are finished beats that people rapped on, some are just ideas, some are things that just didn’t really work out. Instead of just leaving them all on the computer to die, I threw them all together in this mix. Its a little over an hour of hits and misses.”
