Dev Ultra - Drop|Out f. Armani White

Armani White and Dev Ultra are back at it again and as we've come to expect from the two Philly emcees this track doesn't disappoint at all.

What better way to bring in the Fall school season than a pessimistically outlooked track about college. The song "Drop|Out" features strong verses From (Both LegendBound Artists) Dev Ultra, A verse and bridge from Armani White and shared Hook. With hard kicks from the producer "Nique" This serves as anthem for all of the students sitting in a class studying something they'll never use in life and for those who are having a hard time balancing the aspirations for a degree with the financial debt outcome.
