I'm so glad Jill Scott is still getting lots of love.

Edit: Brian McKnight is still in it? Good for him.

Eh they did okay. Anyway, I should listen to Elmatic and the new Frank Ocean and Theophilus soon. Is the new Wu-Tang any good?

I just don't like how they used a vocal beat. I'm a fan of Kanye West, never really been a fan of Jay, but this song just brought my excitement down for this album a little. I'll still listen, nonetheless.

Or you can fucking kiss my ass, human centipede. Childish Gambino has some of the funniest lines I've heard in years.
