First and foremost, since this is the first book review I’d like to give a little bit of context on how I consume content via reading. I don’t read in the traditional sense… try as I might, I’ll get way into reading something, my mind drifts as my eyes are scanning the words and next…

Hailing from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Hundredth just released their new album “Rare” and it’s an album that frankly surprised me in a big way.

Work Ethic

August 4, 2017
