There’s a third verse and an empty space where the hook should be.

Props to RealHipHopSince1979

FYI – I drafted this post on my sweet new Nokia Booklet 3G.

    I mean, that sounds good and all, but give me a fucking break. just because a site has advertising, that doesn’t mean the content is affected. just because you’re dumb ass has been conditioned to think sponsorship = sell out doesn’t make it true. furthermore you sound like a fucking moron, because damn near every CD you’ve ever bought in your life has been put out by a corporation. and obviously you don’t only fuck with smaller blogs because here you are riding my dick.

    nah it’s “my function is to make much and they back munchin” – which has two meanings. first meaning is, niccas is backbiting. second meaning is, niccas is eating camel’s asshole cause he gets down like that.

    No disrespect to you esk, but Nokia should have at least hired someone with a tripod.

    im not eskays friend or anything but this place inspired me for my blog (there is no UK equivalent) and for that he gets untold respect. now that its successful, its only natural that he needs to eat off it – info and onsmash are also on the complexmedia network so you cant expect these people to blog 24/7 for you and not gain anything in return, after a while if a hobby becomes successful for you, it turns into business. remember that.
