    Suge claims in his U.S. Bankruptcy case that while he was in custody back in 2005, he was passed around like a $2 whore — from Barstow police to the West Valley Detention Center to the California Institution for Men.

    Suge stay losing. I still wouldn’t say that to his face.

    T-Pain’s new album Thr33 Ringz landed at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200, with over 167,700 copies sold in its first week.

    Those numbers are good, but I thought Pain was gonna hit at least 250. Not that sales matter, just saying.

    who the fuck are these crackbabies buying a tpain album

    So, is anybody copping 808s and Heartbreak, as in, actually paying for the retail version?

    ^lol. “ha” still goes extreamly hard, I still remember the first time seeing the video & thinking this is the most hood shit ever shown on MTV.

    Had the kids hooping on a fucking crate

    had a lambo in the projects

    Had ninjas scrapping

    Everyone in the video had gold teeth

    Had soft toe reeboks

    Yep, seems pretty gutta to me


    twan, tell me why i remember the EXACT moment i first saw that video. . . it was a friday night, and it was on Yo MTV raps. . . i was in the eighth grade. . . the video came on, and somehow, i couldn’t turn away. . .

    i was like “what the fuck. . . . this ghetto ass shit. . . . this is. . . this is beautiful. . . “

    Its to difficult to narrow it down to one kanye beat.

    Top 10 fav’s in random order:

    Heart of the City (Jay)
    Philly Niggas (Beans and Free)
    Lucifer (Jay)
    Down and Out (Cam)
    We are the champions (Roc)
    Dead or Alive (Cam)
    Nothing Like It (Beans)
    Dreams (Game)
    Heaven (John Legend)
    Flashing Lights

    To be honest i could make 10 different list….

  14. Mr. Papagiorgio Says:

    i’m coppin the air yeezy’s, just off GP.

    and if you think i’m dickriding, look in your closets.

    if you owned a pair of S. Carters/Ice Cream Boardflips/G-Units (don’t front!)/Birdman Lugz (or Eskay Lugz, whatever), we are all in the same boat. . .

    at least yeezy got a shoe with the GOAT, not bum ass reebok.

  15. yours truly Says:
