Haha if there was one person's shit list I wouldn't want to be on right now it's Danny Brown's. Ha that dude could absolutely destroy Mac Miller on the mic ... I really hope he does because it would be awesome.

That Common / Drake spat is hella weird, but Common said some funny shit about him in the song. Common is the man. Real talk. Real hip hop.

Clipse???? Wooooord.

And thank God for Consequence and Tip. Took long enough. Make another fucking Tribe record. Come on. I miss Phife!

Awesome that Drake got that tat but it looks weird. Could have been done way better. Also I think Common would destroy him in a battle.

And stoked for new Blackstar.
