Ab-Soul says there will never be a Black Hippy album so everyone can start feeling bad now.

Kanye on Idol would make me watch. Dude would either be hilarious or wayyyy too harsh and I'd love it either way.

Meek and Asap on the same day is pretty sweet I guess, even if I gotta wait. That version of Goldie would be so great if it didn't have the awkward censorship. And Usher just too sexy.

I remember when Lupe planned to retire one album after The Cool.

Did someone really think they had a creative claim to "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger?".....
