    Eskay you should check Nation for all that blah blah

    A Drake Stan who can’t see what people see in Wayne?

    That’s like a cat saying he loves Big L but can’t mess with Lord Finesse. Except L was on par with Finesse & Drake isn’t nearly on Wayne’s level. smfh.

    SMH @ Russell calling Rick Reuben “nigga.”
    This dude built a career off surrounding himself with talented people and reaping the benefits from it. He’s really an ignorant muthufucka.
