    Yo, what are the best Max B/French Montana tapes to download?

    Good quality songs, preferably with no tags or DJ shout outs either.

    Is the Coke Wave series the only joint tapes they have?

  4. cOLD Says:

    Juggling Eva Mendez AND Sanaa >>>>>

    ^ word?

  5. hood trill stunting aka trap day man Says:

    my moms west indian & very critical but she love the mighty Quinn e’en tho denzel had the horrible patois accent in that flick.

  6. cOLD Says:

    Im afraid denzels best years are behind him… He Pacino status. No more action roles…

  7. Tong Po Flo Says:

    Denzel did make a wack movie in my opinion.

    that manchurian candidate was wyle contrived.

    ^ Denzel did hes part, everybody else was wackalicous

  8. hood trill stunting aka trap day man Says:

    ”sum badie cyal de po leeeaase!”

    lol

  9. cOLD Says:

    the better question, is who’s gonna fill Denzels shoes…

    nosign Morris Chestnut.

  10. TS-LTE Says:

    Actually, Denzel’s resume is pristine! Lets see:

    Paula Patton
    Eva Mendez (TWICE)
    Sanaa Lathan
    Mila Kunis
    The woman from Remember The Titans…

    Didn’t even think about it until now.

  11. cOLD Says:

    Idris Elba coming for that spot.

  12. hood trill stunting aka trap day man Says:

    idris elba would carry that denzel torch but being he’s not american he’s gotta get that one killer role that’ll cement his potential.

  13. hood trill stunting aka trap day man Says:

    & being that idris makes horrible music that he’s serious about doesn’t help.

  14. cOLD Says:

    idris elba would carry that denzel torch but being he’s not american he’s gotta get that one killer role that’ll cement his potential.

    ^ you see that flick where he played an ex military man… shit was kinda crazy.

  15. &What?! Says:

    COKE WAVE IS GOOD YES OR NO?

  16. cOLD Says:

    oh the name of that Elba flick is Legacy. Solid movie.

  17. hood trill stunting aka trap day man Says:

  20. cOLD Says:

    that nigga nice with thespian flow

    ^ co, def one of my favs. He a calm cool cat.

  21. hood trill stunting aka trap day man Says:

    eva is skr8 prime cock lunch.

    she’s claimed to have fucked a dude in all 50 states.

    true story.

  22. cOLD Says:

    nah cOLD i ain see that. it was in theaters?

    ^ netflix is yo friend.

  23. TS-LTE Says:

    Co-no on the Morris Cheatnut nigga.

    He fucked his own career up trying to play the sex symbol role every damn movie. The worse part about the box he painted himself in was that he was actually a decent actor, but he wanted that Ladies Man title. He shoulda known women switch flavors once another one is marketed to them.

    Ildris making his way though.

  27. TS-LTE Says:

    & being that idris makes horrible music that he’s serious about doesn’t help.

    ^

    Lmao. Nah.

  28. cOLD Says:

    Anthony Mackie

    ^ he makes a good supporting actor, not sure about a lead role outside of a Spike Lee movie.

  29. tHe kiD fRanKiE Says:

    cosign Cheadle
    nosign Morris but hes more servicable than Terrance Howard he got zero flexiblilty
    Jamie Foxx>>>>>

    He da next best actor to denzel has the range to play any role

  30. cOLD Says:

  31. TS-LTE Says:

    He still have a great deal of intellectual roles to make though.

    Co-sign Anthony Mackie too.

    And he lil homie from Idlewild. That played Big Boi’s younger character.

  32. cOLD Says:
