20 Verses With The Dopest Bim-Related Bars
It happened to all of us: listening to some music from an artist overseas and you hear a reference/or mention of Barbados, so you run it back to make sure your ears aren’t deceiving you.
So after giving you the six videos last month, I kept with the theme for this list – paying special attention to the dopest verses with the best big-ups to Bim.
After spending some time on Genius, I compiled 20 verses with the dopest Bim – related bars to aid you in
procrastination from that important project the assimilation of relevant information. The Migos love it here !
