Kap G – SupaJefe

I’ve been a strong admirer of Atlanta’s Kap G. His newest album SupaJefe marks his transition toward becoming a BOSS. Having released a series of mixtapes over the course of five years, Kap G’s hard work in perfecting his flows, words, and overall composition is noticeable on SupaJefe.
