Yeesh, Kanye masks hopefully won't be a recurring thing.

And I'll trust Wale on a go-go album after I hear a good song from it. Right now it sounds like a pretty half-baked idea, does he produce or play anything or would he like just be putting the right people together to make it?

Chief Keef's "Laughin' To The Bank" is the most important thing to happen to hip-hop pretty much ever. Learn your place.

Hold up guys. The voice of objectivity is trying to talk about hip hop. Please, enlightened one, tell us what we should be listening to.

dude i think the masks are fuckin' awesome. mainly because they're so stupid and some people just hate his weirdness.

i can almost guarantee the kim k and kanye child will be the antichrist. with that being said i hope kanye puts out a new album soon.

that child is indeed the doom of the world. what if that kid is a boy and marries blue ivy? the world will implode.

A Wale go-go album? Let's see if he's still got it

Ohh Lil Flip... dare I say it, game over?
