Ha, didn't see that, or the heart, just thought you were some random douche.

Perfectly honest mistake. I post in here rather often. It'll more often than not result in more rational discussion than in the hip-hop thread, haha.

And on that note, upon reading Tip's interview, expectations for new material dropped some. Was hoping he'd ride the wave he started with Paper Trail and what coulda-would-shoulda been King Uncaged. Ah, well.

EDIT: I take it back (somewhat). Just heard I'm Flexin. Gold.

The interview with Ski was interesting, such a great producer, I don't think he gets the credit he deserves but I'm hoping when Curren$y blows up he will too.
