2nd Yelawolf LP very much on my wishlist. Radioactive is so much fun.

CTRL+ALT+DANCE 04/29/12 03:41 PM

B.o.B's cd isn't bad. But that song with Nicki is atrocious.

whitelightning7 04/29/12 04:04 PM

Whoa. Why have I not heard about the new Gambino songs!!

Holly HoX! 04/29/12 04:26 PM

You should ban Childish Gambino from these posts just cause he's so shitty.

Holly HoX! 04/29/12 04:27 PM

And Now The Funeral Is Over And All The Tears Are Dried Up

Loving Daughters. It being the worst of the three LIG is a great sign. Also, the hell?

Dustin Harkins 04/29/12 08:41 PM

I don't think Wiz will be able to record with Dre if he's still as strict as he's been.
