Stoked for more action bronson. Biggest talent in rap right now imo. At least the most entertaining.

Hoping the murs/fashawn project is dope. I havent enjoyed murs since...maybe that first ep with 9th wonder.

Hows the slaughterhouse mixtape?

Air Dubai is a very sick name, gotta check those dudes out.

And that Fly Mob video is dope, mostly because of that live version of Runaway. Glad I could get that.
