    I watched Str8-Up a great deal of time before I actually reach out to him to get work done. He usually would come to the studio and record his own music. When I seen str8-up bring in another artist and literally develop a sog for the artist made me reach out and get a couple beats and hook from here. Str8-Up is the truth
