Gift ov Kaddo is Gift ov Kaddo if someone listens to my music can simply spot the difference between me and Radio. I send a warning to everyone out there trying to copy the late Radio to stop it. When I was with Radio at GoodLyfe, he was a friend and he became a brother.
When I left GoodLyfe, It took Mr. X like a week and later he requested to join me to work together and that how we started. I’ve not thought of getting anyother music partners because I don’t think there is anyone better than Mr. X. These are just gamblers.
My brother if you listen to them, you can’t campare him to anybody around.
