    separating the men fro the boys…….. good for him
    However, it doesn’t change the fact that rap in the new millennium has fallen from its heady heights of the 90s golden years. The quality of competition aint as good as it used to be with clowns and wimps like Young Thug, Migos in the rap game.
    Good to know there are still a few purists holding it down.. enjoy your success

    This is what you call ‘Ojoro’. Lol. But it’s what it is. No fingers are equal. He is a smart business man. He factored in a million copy sale of his album into the contract he signed with sprint and gave the copies away for free via download.
