Enter Esta, another beat junkie from the Soulection fam, a group that seems to have witnessed overnight popularity and success with their surplus of dope beats and even doper producers. On Tuesday, we caught up with Esta in between lab sessions with his other beat-brethren and rattled his brain — and ran our fingers through his hair — for another segment of 21 QUESTIONS.
