- Buying GKMC at Newbury Comics tomorrow. Best/favorite hip-hop album this year that Nas didn't release.
- Speaking of Nas, video for A Queen's Story is... yeah. Oh well. Still a top 3 song off a top 5 album of his.
- I'm pretty much with incognito on Wale. If we're gonna believe this first stop on the hypetrain, 3rd LP should be better than the already great Ambition.
- Even without Wayne, Ball is pretty weak. Trouble Man seems shaped up to be as much of a mixed bag as No Mercy was (even though I still like half of that album).
- If only Chief Queef was relevant two years ago, so then he'd get the Shawt Bus Shawty treatment.
- "Drake graduated high school. Let's bring back the Jimmy Brooks jokes for this one."






Congrats to Drake for real.

Buying RZA for sure. I want to buy Kendrick's release but I'm still doing my Interscope boycott so looks like I won't be purchasing it. But it is album of the year for sure.

It's not an official boycott that's going on or anything but I think it's bullshit that Chief Keef is still on Interscope after all the shit he's pulled so I'm not buying anything that comes from Interscope till he's dropped.

it's been a weak year, in my opinion. but man the 4th quarter has been delivering, huh?

Hoping I can find time to hit up Best Buy after work. Gotta get that GKMC.

you and me both.

- Speaking of Nas, video for A Queen's Story is... yeah. Oh well. Still a top 3 song off a top 5 album of his.

PICTURESSSSSSSSSSSSS]

-delivered, as expected. A+ on the brooks memes.
-WTF was with that nas video?
-i'm all but jumped ship on trouble man. i root for t.i. cause his early shit up to paper trail is some of my favs, but man. so inconsistent lately.
-fuck chief keef, and now i'm going to watch SBS

I went too far, didn't I?

not far enough

It's not an official boycott that's going on or anything but I think it's bullshit that Chief Keef is still on Interscope after all the shit he's pulled so I'm not buying anything that comes from Interscope till he's dropped.

it's amazing how the label does not give half a shit about all the lil jojo stuff from a few weeks back. unreal.
