- RIP Kile.
- Nice seeing Nas on top. Still bumping LIG, in fact it's making it a bit hard to give GFID more spins.
- "Snoop Dogg is banned from Norway for two years. Can you guess why?" Invalid passport?

that album has been the bane of my existence. i keep chalking it up to "hip-hop isn't ready for it yet" -- hope i'm right! that tracklisting looks great. hoping for a lot of just blaze beats.

LIG is my #1 of the year right now. And #2 is strangely GFID, such an improvement.

J. Cole's new song is awesome, especially considering how much I hated "Liftoff".

That new No Malice song is really good too.

This is such a good year for music.

i really thought cole did well on the 'liftoff' beat as well. i think GFID is a swt record, but i'm still partial to his old shit.

gambino x chief keef interview was garbage. atleast glover tried.

can't tell if chief keef is retarded or if he's retarded.

Does anyone have good recommedations on Northwest (or NW by association :) ) hip-hop artists? I've loved Blue Scholars, Macklemore, Bambu, Common Market, but that's really all I known. If any of you are from Seattle through San Fran, enlighten me!
