    WHAT??????????? Lolly just saw your my space page(if u are reading this), ki lon se e? As in what was the weed infomercial for? Nah nah nah nah, we are more than that. Yeah yeah snoop does it, but that is his thing. You NEVER know how big you might become tomorrow or what endorsements you might be up for and the last thing you need is for someone to pull up that video. It is 4:19am here so you are probably sleeping,but I am sending you a text sharpish. NAH NAH NAH NAH. You can keep it gansta without having videos where your peeps throw up the blood sign(you live in LA, you know better) and they definitely should not be doing it on the web. These things can come back to haunt o. Apart from that, you know it is still all love darling.

    Bella, at this point I sound like a broken record telling you how much I love your blog. I’ll sha do it again…your blog is off the chain.

    Haven’t been able to hear the songs, somethings not right with my pc @work! Sheesh! But I can see the video..I also read the interview with Sauce Kid aka Ola aka Lolly ahahahaha..I’m so sorry had to do that. Yetty of Nigerian Entertainment Online is really good interviewer, she really kept asking the questions I wanted to ask! Whats with “swagger” and the “word to god” and the “Jockin’ of styles”… ohh I could go on. What about originality? I am pretty sure he is damn good rapper!

    Ikechukwu….Has a body on him CHINEKE!!! I’ll BRB and comment on their music when I can actually get some audio!

    hmm bella beta is not all that oh…do u know it doesnt let me leave comments on ur page unless i sign as “other” n indicate myname and webpage – if u notice my pic doesnt come beside my comments on ur pages anymore…and it only happens with the blogger beta peeps pages (i noticed) cos if I sign as normal mona and write n write, when i click post comment it tells me “page not found” arghhhh.

    I think I’ll wait for blogger beta to be fully functioning before I move over jare, I’m not helping them test their beta version.

    Well BN, I know not of Rukus and work Internet is iffy so the audio will take forever and still not gotten round to getting connected at home, so one day soon. Sauce Kid I remember from BasketBall. Still only heard that one song and he’s on point lyrically, and the song is catchy but until I hear more, there is no verdict. On Ikechukwu, TL November should answer your question 😉 Just keep those crowns on lock for a little while longer if you ask me (which you did) and look out for syndik8 records. they are on myspace somewhere (i do not myspace).
