Diplo and 2 Chainz should be great. 17 verse remix should be ridiculously over the top.

you gotta love how completely oblivious he is to anything. it's like nothing matters and he never has any fucks to give.

agreed on all fronts. who's gonna listen to a 17 verse remix more than once?

I think Chief Keef is the worst thing to happen to music in a long time.

he is bad but "love sosa" is pretty good.

those comments on the Frank Ocean article

internet comments are the worst thing about the internet that no one can ignore (nor has the willpower to)

amazed at how catchy that song is, its really impressive.

If only POPPED A MOLLY I"M SWEATIN was the hook, he'd have some competition.
