But it's even nicer when that person actually lives just a couple of suburbs away from you. Cue the standard "wow, the world's a small place" carry on.
That's the scenario we're working with today, with a fresh new tune from someone by the name of INF.
I know very little about INF, aside of that he hails from Onehunga, Auckland (a hop skip and a jump from my ends), and that his new tune, 'BxBxLxB' is dope. But that's enough for me.
A string-laced, healthy head nod-inducing beat from a geezer by the name of Smokey sets the scene on 'BxBxLxB', with INF showing some healthy vocal chops.
