C. Fulla and Antoine Banks’ ‘#DopeForever ‘ review (4 out of 5 stars)

Hip hop has dominated the music charts for the last two decades and it doesn’t look like it’s slowing down; Antoine Banks and Cody Fuller, aka C. Fulla, are making sure of that.

 They recently released their first collaborated mixtape under D.O.P.E. (Dreaming of Possessing Everything) Music, and it has been a hot commodity, especially around the central Texas area. The mixtape is that perfect sound for what a lot of people look for when they are out on the town or at a house party. The mixtape has a perfect blend of songs that make you want to get up and dance, and others that make you listen to the lyrics and hear the story the two have to tell. Singer Amanda Colon also appears on the chorus’ of some tracks and she adds a beautiful voice to an already talented pair of vocal artists.
