By Jos Smart | @JosSmart Yes yes. So it’s been a quick couple of months since the last Beatsfix and I finally felt it time to break out another update. The pace things move on the internet these days, taking two months out of the ‘blogging’ game is as good as retiring at your peak, […]

Beats: Fat Joe ft. Raekwon ‘Pushing Keys’
