I showed my parents and my brother the HYFR video. Couldn't put a price on my dad's reaction.

LOVE the write up on the Danny Brown/Dong Lover show. Not a huge Gambino fan, but I'd love to see that live band in action, and it seems like dude's pouring a lot of his creativity into the live show. Wish it would show in his music. Dying to see Danny live.

Skipped right to the Twitter quote and thought that DMX had stolen the identity of a man named Jason Fowler and tweeted the news whilst forgetting to switch accounts. RUFF RUFF RUFF

New Drake videos are both incredible. Fucking great. Just creative and awesome and beautiful.

Theraflu is a banger. Been on constant rotation this week. Have yet to listen to Roman Reloaded yet for some reason. I was anticipating it so much but when it was pushed back I couldn't even remember when the date was. Bottoms Up is so bland. So boring. I was very disappointed.

I am half asleep as I type this so my apologies if any of it is blahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

How has Donald not fallen into a drug fueled depression? Headlining after Danny Brown? Get real.

I'm excited for DMX's Undisputed and Nas' new song.

I'm disappointed with Dr. Dre working with Rick Ross. First Khaled now this?

Diggy Simmons is clearly trying to get some publicity after his album flopped. He's also posting a bunch of "Like if you remember" type of pictures on Facebook. People on my friend list keep liking them and it shows up on my newsfeed. It's really annoying.

The video for "HYFY" was alright. I didn't expect Lil Wayne to be the dude with the panda mask; didn't even think he was going to be in the video, haha.

Still don't understand Drake's appeal.

Really wish Jay Elect would drop his album.

what's funny is my dad watched it with me, and said "this is the stupid shit you listen to all day?"

Still listening to Mickey MauSe at least once a day. Everyone should check it out.

i've gotten through like half. very good. need to tackle the whole thing.

Cool to see Childish performs Twistclip Loop live! If I went to the show and he randomly busted out in that i'd go nuts.

other than LTO, i thought the encore was kinda wasted. two freestyles? should've thrown on "that power" or "not going back."

Very stoked about that new DMX actually. Hope he gon give it to us.

And that Wale/Currensy video just dropped this morning.

didn't get to it. but that song is sooooooooooooooo good. my favorite song either of them have been a part of in a while.

-the show's great. definitely hit the tour up if it hits your town.
-agreed on the videos. i thought both of them were EXCELLENT.
-love theraflu, and love the fact kanye's not exactly trying to push boundaries. he's just making fun shit to cook to.
-roman reloaded is fucking terrible. like seriously --- TERRIBLE.

How has Donald not fallen into a drug fueled depression? Headlining after Danny Brown? Get real.

danny was good, but as far as live shows are concerned, he isn't holding a candle to the shit donald's doing on stage. donald's sleeping just fine at night.

Still don't understand Drake's appeal.

Really wish Jay Elect would drop his album.

don't really care what the consensus is, but drake is an incredible artist. he's very relatable and raps about earnest shit that everyone pisses on him for, calls him soft for, etc. it's the hip-hop version of half the shit you see on this site.

album seems like it's coming man. "dear moleskine" is great.
