That super group sounds dope... Also Q really does hate hands on the wheel. He came out at the Kendrick Lamar show at sx this year and did just that song. He said after it "I cant wait til my new album comes out so i can stop playing this fucking song", threw the mic down and vanished.

Love it. I figured there'd be more people getting offended by it, haha.

Sometimes I don't get why respectable artists work with this jackass (even though he makes for some nice hooks.)

The Mass Appeal show at Austin Music Hall with Bun B, ASAP Ferg, Raekwon, Nylo and others. It was a good time. Duane Brown came out and was on stage the whole time. Despite efforts, Texans chants did not catch on :/

- Makes more sense as a song title. IAAG as an album title sounds like some shitty parody of Kanye
- Well, yeah there's stuff like how big My Last got. But he never struck me (post-Rihanna especially) as some go-to guest for whenever an artist (or their label) needed a big hit. Must have some really good working relationships with certain rappers. Like, he supposedly charges around 200k for a hook, but he'll do one for Game no charge. Seriously.

This is probably the only spot ill see anything about it so ill say it now, Tyler's new album Wolf, is his best. And if you can't see that then you weren't listening to him for the right reasons.
