Awful, especially the day after Andre's birthday.

If you are looking for a record to bump at obscenely loud volumes in your car (perhaps an 07 Maxima) while you pull up in your cul-de-sac, highly recommend Excuse My French.

I need to go to either the Baltimore or DC show for J. Cole. But the venue & time won't be announced until the day of? What is this J. Cole & Norah's Infinite Playlist? Hmmm it would suck to drive there and then not be able to get in.

i feel like these are gonna be small, intimate shows. i'd definitely want to be around the area in the city where all the venues are. would def be bummed to miss this shit.
