    Yo, that dude killed poor Lupe with that review. He came off like some stupid journalist hater who was only mad cause Lupe didn’t get him drunk like Hov would. I mean, I’d like to hit the Patron with Jay, but I’d also kick it with Lupe and listen to the album. This guy sound nonsensical and needs a smack.

  99. DaILList4Ever Says:

    this cover is fuqn sick

  100. That dude Says:

    Well the masons might use it in rituals and etc but this is a symbol from demonolgy what it really is , is the sheild of the trinity used in christianity turned upside down satanist etc do that often to mock holy things such as the pentagram is an upside down star used to mock or change its once holy meaning the symbol on lupes cover is called the triangle of solomon…so yea its pretty bad…i have no idea why he would use it…but its not a coincidence he knows what he was doing
