- Man, Lupe can't release anything without some sort of major clusterfuck. Still, I dig the song, but it's very far from promising as far as F&L2 goes.
- Tip + Michael Bluth + Molly Megan from Bridesmaids? Could be cool.
- Goddamit, Wayne.
- I'm No OF fan, but I like most of what I saw of Loiter Squad. I'll check it out.
- I am a fan of the Daughters visual. Consensus appears to be that LIG's poised to be better than Untitled - and by extension, his best in a while.

M.I.A on Roc Nation makes sense now after seeing pictures of her backstage at Watch The Throne in London with Rihanna.

Haven't listened to Elzhi. And that KL track is smooth, as expected.

You obviously didn't even look at the details of the incident. Lupe cleared it with Pete first, and then Pete went back after it was released and bitched about it just cause he didn't like it. So Pete's in the wrong here.

-totally agree with you on the lupe front. it's getting so silly. it's becoming a burden to try and support him.
-all new nas stuff is tickling my fancy on the reg. very excited for LIG. anytime a top 5 of all time list gets mentioned without nas, i cringe a little.

M.I.A on Roc Nation makes sense now after seeing pictures of her backstage at Watch The Throne in London with Rihanna.

i feel like it was bound to happen once MIA left her label. jay's been a huge fan of her for a while, and what better way to eliminate competition than by signing her?

Shawn Chrystopher was tight on the Big Sean/CyHi tour.

i enjoyed him there too. i enjoyed quite a few jams off this tape too:

Lupe Fiasco has no right to be dissing Pete Rock.

in theory, you're right. but in this case, it's a case of who's the bigger asshole - and for a change, it's not lupe fiasco.
