    I DONT WANT YOUR ENERGY DRINK
    DAMNNN

    on shrooms,
    everyone (willing.curuous) should do them once, if they feel comfortable. nothing too crazy usually, but you should try it at least once
    just keep weed with you.

    drank is legit for chillin iguess, i try to limit opiates in my life.
    weed>
    booze>

    but only weed nightly
    ^^^

    shrooms is the shit but ive come to realize most black ppl only fuk wit weed and alcohol and the balck ppl who do mess wit psychadelics or other drugs for that matter hang around white ppl. noshots

    im a white kid so this makes sense

    i mean im down for an experience adn everything, but i gotta be somewhat respsonsible with this mind ya dig.

    also, anyone who takes shrooms, DO NOT DO IT ON A WHIM/DEHYRDATED, DRUNK etc..

    it can be fun, but it can also be terrible. and try not to be by yourself,

    other than that, enjoy.

    smh @ jeru in the middle east.

    i played the bar w/him for sec and chopped it up about the tees. he turns to his right, bags this venezuelan broad in like 5 minutes. turns back to our convo, flicks up and got right back at her.

    cool mahfuka. this is the first time i’ve seen him in person but i’ve been a fan.

    i was wylin when he did dirty rotten scondrels too. insane yo. still.

  28. Troyvul Says:

    Only done shrooms once, it was ight.

  29. mcb Says:

    oh4werd
    ironic that on RPM on lifting off he says “…wouldn’t let me have it, he said that’s a white name drug”

    i dont remember the exact line but hes asking about acid

  30. Hopp Says:

    So … With all the time he had to choose, Kanye finally drops his single and is taking shots @ … SNL ?

  31. kevfrescura de talco Says:

    never new drugs were race related

    ^
    lol

    they’re not. ‘they’ report it like that to keep control of the money involved. if books are cooked in a certain community w/a certain drug of choice, they know the demographic in the area is changin.

  32. Mag Says:

    Lol at kanye flipping 50 formula.

  33. mcb Says:

    Dirty rotten was SOOOO SICk.

    there was a nice mixtape of Guru/affiliates on Datpiff i was prepping for the show with. that was on it, so money.

  34. Dee Says:

    @Hopp

    did you expect dude to take shots at Taylor Swift / white america right off the bat?

  35. mcb Says:

    race/drugs

    my buddys dad lives in a decently wealthy neighborhood, gates, etc.. but its FL so thats all over. anyway, at some rich folks partys, they have some coke just out int he open/available. obvnot all the time, but clearly this goes on.
    how does these rich white folk (yes I know Im white, but i havea feeling my viewpoint on society is much diff than theirs) can do lines of blow one second, and talk down about other races/people doing the same drug.
    thats like buying a Benz and hating on someone who can only afford a Honda Civic ro something

    terrible analogy, but you get where i was going with it.

    ^^

    I can tell you what I wasn’t expecting … And that was a SNL diss track.

    That said, I’m reading this ” » Why Is Kanye Mad at SNL? ” article to get some light.
