Prodigy's already releasing a new album? Not a fan of his music, but I can't knock his work ethic.

Fuck yes Pusha. I think him and The-Dream working together will be incredible.

Fuck yes Lupe. I like his new album, don't care what anyone says.

Fuck yes Lil B.

Fuck no Lil Wayne.

Cruel Winter will be great because Cruel Summer set the bar pretty low.
