- If past mixtapes and bits and pieces of RED are any indication, new Game mixtape will be meh at best.
- Nicki album cover = Terrifying
- Did not know about Alchemist putting out a new album.
- Wouldn't have known WZRD was out now if someone AP didn't post a leak thread in General. Any songs on that album tolerable aside from Teleport?
- 4aaD's an album? Other parts of the internet (like HHDX and Rap Radar) seems to refer to it as a mixtape. Regardless, I'll take it.
