Mixtape: Jus Clide "Bonnie"


Jus Clide is back with 15 quality tracks on his brand new mixtape, Bonnie. It was an emotional year for Jus Clide with the passing of this father and so he titled this tape Bonnie because hip hop is his right hand, his soul mate and the one thing that helps conquer his pain. Turning something negative into something positive is what great artists do. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you, Jus.
