Not only was ANALOG recorded there, but Leila’s NYC
also houses his publishing entity, where such hits as J. Cole ’s “No Role Modelz” and Bryson Tiller ’s “Let Me Explain” are a part of the catalogue.
ANALOG will be available on all music platforms March 2nd and will be distributed by Vinyl Crown Recordings.
