- RIP Chris Kelly

- Safe to assume next 20/20 will be pushed back, right? Whatever, still being enamored with the current one of his.

- That song Lauryn Hill did... well, I can believe she didn't make it entirely of her own free will.

- Kanye's new album apparently being done already is crazy. Also, dude HAS to be playing something new at his next SNL stop.

Kanye was playing new material at his show last night, so I'm sure something new will be dropping soon.

Every little piece of rumored Kanye news gets me so excited, and we don't even know anything for sure.

She's sucked for years. The Miseducation is one of the greatest albums of all time, but she's dropped the ball for everything she put out after that.


Acid Rap is probably going to end up being mixtape of the year. His beat selection is amazing.
