MOVE UP: The Dream Chronicles

A new single “MOVE UP: THE DREAM CHRONICLES” is the latest from me, Sam I Am Montolla. I’m grateful to have great, creative people around me to help “my dreams” come true! Produced by Shash’U, the Creator of PWRFNK (Fool’s Gold) and the video directed by Jai Nitai Lotus, the brother like no other, who has made a mark in the city and is more than what you thought of!
