Cobain's story fits perfectly with the message of the song, it seems like.

This is interesting and I'm intrigued to hear it. However it's disheartening to think they had to ask courtney love's permission. Sometimes I wish we could know what Kurt would have thought of that.

A massive commercial artist releasing a song that features copyrighted lyrics from another massive commercial artist. I would think it just makes good legal sense to obtain permission to use said protected lyrics. Especially considering the scale of the release and courtney's reputation for fighting over legal control over kurt's lyrics/music in the past.

Courtney Love has no reservations about suing anyone over using Nirvana material first and foremost. She also owns the rights to the songs and any use of them must be obtained legally through her.

One of the best rappers ever. His body of work is unreal. I'm sure this album will slam.

Releasing lyrics this way is not a good tease. Just let us hear the song.

Welp, when you lift terrible lyrics from one song and put them into another, they're still just that; terrible.

Really getting tired of rappers making biblical references. This guy is kind of lame anymore and I have no idea why he is so popular. His flow is weak, his lyrics are terrible and like most rappers, all he does is talk about how great he is.
