Some other good news for the Garlin camp, rapper A$AP Ferg released his new song that samples the Carnival Tabanca riddim. He gives props to Garlin, saying “shout out to all my Trini fam #petitvalley & @bunjigarlin for giving me the honors of blessing the world with the Fergie Flow over ‘Carnival Tabanca’ which is my favorite song right now.”
Take a listen to his new song and let us know waht you think!
