A-Trak Fighting the Good Fight – Releasing Hip Hop Album in the fall:
The Montreal producer and DMC Champion is putting the final touches on a hip-hop compilation album to be released in the fall.

Action Bronson, Freeway that we’re bringing back, Main Attractions, Chuck Inglish from the Cool Kids, we even got some stuff that AraabMuzik produced. There’s a song that I did with Juicy J
