Much anticipating Ice Cube and 50 Cent.

I heard apparently Young Chop settled his differences with Kanye.

incognitojones 05/06/12 07:38 PM

Meek Mill gonna drop that tape tomorrow, should be great. Will hold me over til Usher drops that solid 18 track album.

ASAP Rocky's video for Goldie is the best thing to happen to music in years.

legit curious about 50. i always want him to put out a good record, but he never does (except get rich - a hood classic!).

probably because he realized he played himself big time. the biggest star from his city puts him on, and he shits all over him? that's a bad, bad look. might as well say he's glad derrick rose tore his acl.

Dream Chasers 1 is pretty solid, but should be heavily outshined by this new tape. Other than a lot of features that's all I have from him.
