D'Angelo - Unshaken
“May I stand unshaken/ amid, amidst a crashing world” What’s interesting is that over a year later I’m currently playing Red Dead Redemption II for the first time, and sure enough this fits the vibe of the game perfectly, though it should be noted just how groundbreaking D’Angelo’s involvement is.
