When we asked Federation to throw down a mix for you guys, we were pretty damn surprised with what showed up a few weeks later. Esta Rose from Fed knows her hip hop and also happens to know the legend of NZ hip hop, PNC. This mix by Esta & PNC is on loop in the FallenFront office and we don't doubt it will be for you too. Making it even more legit, you're one of the first to hear a few of PNC's new jams from the brand new album "The CODES", fresh off the mixing desk.
After listening to the playlist, we dropped PNC a line to find out what's going on and to get a little insight into the life and world of the NZ hip hop guru...
