LOL at continuing to ignore OF. Vol 2 is actually pretty impressive and cohesive.

Also, how jealous are you that I get to vibe with Shabazz Palaces tomorrow? Super small venue too. Word.

Me no likey OF, brother. Will probably never post unless it's Franky O. Or when Tyler and Kanye collab.

And dope! Slept the fuck on Black Up. Still regret it. But SP is playing a Houston festival this summer, so I'll make up for it.

Frank and Earl's parts on Oldie are ridiculous, man.

And get those SP EPs too. Just as good.

It wasn't posted but I kinda dig new T.i., even though it's poised to be what Whatever You Like was to Paper Trail (and that was one of the only three songs off PT I didn't like).
