B.o.B's cd isn't bad. But that song with Nicki is atrocious.

I don't think Wiz will be able to record with Dre if he's still as strict as he's been.

he's an extremely talented rapper, just can't get into it. his voice is just too abrasive.

B.o.B's cd isn't bad. But that song with Nicki is atrocious.

still haven't listened to anything that doesn't have a video. the tracklisting has kept me at bay, to be honest.
