Fabolous has got a great album. Jay-Z, obviously. Last year I was bumpin’ T.I.’s Paper Trail for almost the whole summer. I had bought Lil Wayne’s album, but I was so busy recording that it literally just sat in my CD case until like six months ago. There was the hype about him, but I didn’t see what all the hype was about. I felt like he was good, certainly above average from his singles, but it was like, “Is he that dope?” Then I listened to the whole album and was like, “Wow! My man is that dope—Lil Wayne is fucking dope!” You’ve got to listen to a Lil Wayne song four, five, or six times to actually catch everything he’s saying. We were at a video set a couple months ago and I’m bumping it in the trailer and I’m like, “Yo, Wayne is dope!” And Paul is like, “Really? You’re just now figuring this out? Where the fuck have you been?” They think it’s funny, but you know, being sober, my eyes have opened up to so much more shit that I was missing, that I should have been hip to.
>>>pardon the thesis, but that quote from marshall is interesting because he just big ups the most hated cats on nah
